    By participating in this programme, MSMEs gain the necessary skills to deal with export documentation and rules around exporting, choose the right logistics partner and package shipments sustainably; optimize and manage their website to attract international costumers, access to e-commerce and use social media marketing to generate traffic, leads and sales.

      Access TO Green Finance

      This programme supports MSMEs improving their financial management and raising external finance through financial diagnostic, direct coaching to address gaps, and support to connect them with financiers and develop bankable business plans and investor pitch decks.
