The Challenges Group offers a range of operational, implementation and advisory services to small and medium-sized enterprises. These include business development, market assessments, commercial linkages, impact evaluation, investment readiness, and project management.
We also offer a learning and development programme in partnership with the Chartered Management Institute. These accredited CMI training courses cover management best practice, enabling individuals to grow as business leaders who can make a positive economic impact upon their communities.
We have also led multi-agency commercial initiatives in rural communities, such as in Rwanda where we’re enabling seven coffee co-operatives to access global markets, and in Malawi where we’re establishing commercial hubs to better balance supply chains and improve conditions for farmers.
Within urban centres, we continue to support banks, insurers, manufacturers and other businesses to design new products and services, with our networks and expertise providing invaluable insights and highlighting opportunities within the SME business landscape.
