Training materials developed by BiD Network for entrepreneurs and business service providers

The Ready4Finance training program was developed by BiD Network with financial support of FMO and ICCO. Ready4Finance is a modular training package designed for Business Development Service Providers such as entrepreneurship centers, incubators, business support centers, chambers of commerce and business schools, that want to support Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in their start-up and growth and in becoming “investment ready”. The training helps entrepreneurs in starting and developing their businesses, getting ready for finance and in getting familiar with different types of finance and investors, pitching techniques and the investment process. Up to 2015, local partner organizations in more than 10 countries have been trained and certified as trainers of the Ready4Finance training, and more than … entrepreneurs have participated in one or more training sessions.

On this page, you can find the training materials. Note that only partners with whom BiD Network has cooperated in training purposes can access all materials of the Ready4Finance training program.
