Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is, for the first time, participating in Global Entrepreneurship Week since 2008. The annual campaign is held in over 170 countries with more than 35,000 events and 20,000 partner organisations. During Global Entrepreneurship Week from 16 to 22 November, Frankfurt School will be offering free online courses under the title "Adapting your business in times of COVID-19". The courses will be available to entrepreneurs of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs).
The free online training is part of a European Investment Bank (EIB) programme to support the financial sector in the Caribbean. Frankfurt School has been taking part in the EIB programme since May 2018. The online training aims to support entrepreneurs of newly founded and established MSMEs in the Caribbean adapt to the environment during and after the pandemic. Furthermore, it will strengthen MSME skills in business and liquidity management.
"We are very pleased to be part of the 2020 Global Entrepreneurship Week. With our free online training, we want to contribute to promoting the exchange between entrepreneurs", said Fatma Dirkes, Director of International Advisory Services and Vice President of Frankfurt School.
