Together with the European Investment Bank (EIB), Frankfurt School has developed a free online training to support Caribbean micro, small and medium-sizes enterprises (MSMEs) businesses with digital tools in times of COVID-19. Over 100 people took part in the training and followed this year’s business plan competition, MicroPitch 2021. On Thursday 17 June, four winners in the General Category, Women's Category, Public Vote Category and Social Media Category were awarded, receiving seed capital, training and mentoring from international and national experts in business development, digitization and innovation.
Frankfurt School provides a targeted and tailor-made capacity building programme for entrepreneurs by designing and implementing business plan training. The MicroPitch competition offers a platform for participating business owners to present their business plans and innovative solutions that they have implemented to adapt their businesses to the new context of COVID-19. The goal is to have a positive impact on employment and financial inclusion in the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean region as well as boost enterprises. MicroPitch is organised in the framework of the Technical Assistance Programme to the Financial Sector in the Caribbean region financed by the European Investment Bank (EIB) and implemented by Frankfurt School since May 2018.
