What is the way out?
Never before have we seen a disruption like the current. It is unprecedented in our history and detrimental to the economy. The fallout from the lockdown is affecting each and every Namibian including you. There is not a single individual or company that has managed to escape its impact.
Ensure that you make the best decisions throughout this crisis for which no playbook exists.
As a service to business and professional people who find themselves in a crunch, Standard Bank Namibia, in collaboration with the Namibia Economist, has designed a series of online business talks to address relevant current issues for small and medium enterprises. This series brings experts and analysts together to help SME owners find solutions for the myriad of problems facing us, and to map a strategic road to participate in and gain the most from the post-pandemic economy.
Attend the digital Standard Bank #GrowYourBusiness….IT CAN BE! online Business Talks Series from October 2020 to September 2021 and it will teach you how to step up your game to address the immediate crisis and to guide your business to the next normal.
We will offer you the tools to start your business, to find the right financing in the right place, to define your market and your customers and to use internet tools for your business and accounting systems to keep your business in good standing with authorities.
