WHAT WE DO
DESIGN OF PROGRAMS for (international) NGOs, Banks and other intermediary organizations working in the space of private sector development. Ejo offers a well rounded toolbox geared towards business growth and finance readiness of entrepreneurs across sectors.
SOURCING OF BUSINESS PLANS through business plan competitions, direct sourcing or through our network within the ecosystem. We find the best businesses and support them to spur their growth.
PROVISION OF A MULTIMODULAR TRAINING PROGRAM Ready4Finance (including training of trainers). We have a network of 23 certified trainers in Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda who can provide the Ready4Finance training in more than 5 languages.
DIRECT COACHING TO SMEs who want to grow and are actively looking for finance from banks and private investors.
EVENT MANAGEMENT. We organise interactive networking events, round-tables and workshops for financiers, government bodies, policy makers, NGOs, and other stakeholders. These events, which range from small targeted sector round tables to large (400+) networking events, are a great forum to open dialogue on private sector development, and to meet and interact with SMEs and find investment opportunities.
INVESTOR MATCHMAKING AND FACILITATION. We actively connect the most ready entrepreneurs to financiers and we also provide deal facilitation and representation for foreign investors in Rwanda. Recently Ejo facilitated an investor trip of Dutch Angel investors to Rwanda.
Ejo is currently active in Rwanda, Burundi, DRC and Tanzania
