Co-working space Nairobi Garage and entrepreneurship support firm Sinapis have partnered to run a 20-week mini-MBA programme for entrepreneurs, designed to assist startups in reaching the next level of growth.
The programme offered by Nairobi Garage and Sinapis uses a secular version of Sinapis’ curriculum and Harvard School of Business course material to provide entrepreneurs with the necessary knowledge, skills and networks for scaling their businesses.
Beginning in October with sessions every Saturday, the programme is targeted at founders and CEOs running idea, early or growth stage businesses with several years of prior work experience in business and at least a university-level education.
“There are many business owners that have great products and vision, but could really benefit from a more well-rounded knowledge of business management. From unit economics to customer acquisition, Sinapis have built a course which covers your A-Z of business strategy and management,” said Hannah Clifford, general manager of Nairobi Garage.
“We are complementing their content with special sessions, such as digital marketing and pitching. Plus with the businesses at Nairobi Garage and our extended network into many of the big players in the new economy, there is a lot to gain for those who participate.”
The entire course costs KES42,000 (US$400), with interested entrepreneurs invited to fill out this form by October 1 to be considered.
