Are you ready to grow your business?

Business courses are often too broad and consultants are often too expensive. That’s why we came up with a tailored, holistic solution focused entirely on the emerging needs of the young Kenyan entrepreneur.

01

Wezesha Business Training

We begin with our Wezesha Business Training track, structured to set you on the path to actualized business growth. We will cover a wide range of market relevant topics such as customer acquisition and retention, pricing, financial management, improving your sales & marketing, and so much more, allowing you to strategically map out a business growth plan.

02

Business Diagnostic / Growth Plan

Upon successful completion of the training, you will be assigned a business development advisor (BDA) who will work with you to learn the ins-and-outs of your business. To ensure that their strategic advising is as relevant as possible, your BDA will work with you to conduct an in-depth diagnostic of your business helping you to solve challenges while identifying opportunities. Based on this diagnostic, together you will build a tailored plan laying out your growth goals and Ongoza’s support package.

03

Our personalized one-on-one advisory is structured to equip you with the skills to help you solve challenges, identify opportunities and grow your business.
