First SME Academy event held in Abidjan
On 15 December 2016, Abidjan hosted the first SME Academy event.
Advising the Ivorian SMEs
The purpose of the event, which was organised by the BICICI, is to offer Ivory Coast SMEs support in steering and developing their businesses.
The group's current and prospective clients came together to work on topics such as how to stimulate and support the growth of a company, lease funding, and the funding of customer service projects.
The SME Academy event originated in November 2016 at the “La finance s’engage” forum, and positions the BICICI as a key partner for Côte d’Ivoire SMEs, which are a vital link in the country’s economic fabric.
The second SME Academy event will be held in April 2017.
