The Building Bosses programme will be expanding to Swakopmund.

The specialised programme offered by Impact Tank aims to equip entrepreneurs with the necessary tools and skills to effectively manage their own micro-enterprises.

Applications closed on 20 August for the programme which is set to start at the coast on Monday, 13 September 2021 and which is open to 20 participants at no cost.

All transport, catering, stationery and equipment are provided.

The 3-month course is offered in three phases. During the first month, participants will learn the basics of business. This includes education in computer literacy, entrepreneurship, marketing, inventory management, production, operations and financial literacy.

Thereafter, participants will dedicate a month to complete the Business-in-a-Box assignment. They will receive goods to sell and are taught how to market, use and sell these products as well as identify opportunities in their communities.

Finally, participants will spend the third and final month composing and calibrating their own business ideas into a cohesive business model.

They will then pitch their business idea to a panel of judges and potential investors on Pitch Day at the end of the programme.

All activities adhere to three thematic areas which are dear to Impact Tank: The Green Economy, food security and human capital.

“Impact Tank is dedicated to the upliftment of Namibians,” says facilitator and marketing assistant, Charlie Jordaan.

“With presence across two continents, Impact Tank is able to leverage its global network in the social entrepreneurship space, leading to sustainable outcomes for Namibians,” she said.
