Leadership coaching

SMEs are vital for the African economy. This requires future vision and good management practices. Blue Rhino leverages their potential by building on their leadership qualities and coaches the entrepreneurs to organize their resources and widen their network to become successful in their agricultural sector.

Becoming investor ready

The SME entrepreneur is taken through the process to become “investor ready”. Open dialogue and feedback on the quality of documentation, including the business plan, play a major role in our approach to small business financing. We help the entrepreneurs to prepare conversations with potential investors or pitch ideas to the right audience.
