Personal business training for necessity entrepreneurs
Who We Are
Elevate Business is a for-profit, business management and financial literacy training company. We provide personalized and holistic training to the borrowers of high-volume financial lending institutions in emerging markets. We empower small business owners with the tools needed to improve and grow sustainable businesses.
What We Do
Access to capital has become ubiquitous—with microfinance institutions, cooperatives, and commercial lenders—”banks”—competing to lend money to millions of small business owners.
Necessity entrepreneurs—individuals forced into starting a small business as their primary source of income—are receiving small business loans with little to no business management or financial literacy training. Their loans pose a higher risk to lenders. In turn, they borrow money at very high interest rates. They are overwhelmed. They need help. We have a solution for the borrowers and the banks.
We provide in-person business management and financial literacy training to necessity entrepreneurs in emerging markets. Our high-volume banking partners allow for scale.
