ABOUT BUSINESS START UP COURSE / short description of course

Sensi Hub is excited to bring you Sierra Leone’s first free 12 weeks business startup course, the Fire Starter! The course is designed for new or recently established Sierra Leone businesses. Whether you work in Agriculture, fashion, technology or cosmetics, social enterprise this course is for you!

90% of new businesses sadly failed in the first year. But by going through this practical course, looking at every element of the business plan from market research, branding to accounting and finance your chances of success are greatly increased.

The course is delivered by Sierra Leonean and Western business professionals with a wealth of experience. The course will take a practical hands on approach sending applicants out into their relevant field to visit their target customers testing their products and receiving vital feedback. Each business will receive a business mentor who they will meet with for regular guidance even after the completion of the course.
