One-on-One Coaching

Every entrepreneur we train is paired with an Elevatero–a personal business management coach–whose singular focus is to help each borrower improve their business. To begin the training process, our Elevateros use Elevate’s proprietary Business Diagnostic to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the business. Thereafter, Elevateros provide personalized training through video calls using Elevate’s proven training methodology and content on topics such as sales, management, financial records, marketing and KPIs. The purpose of the Elevatero is to educate, empower and strengthen each entrepreneur.

Webinars

Borrowers have access to Webinars—group workshops with 30-40 other local business operators who convene through a video conference call—where they receive in-depth training to solidify important concepts like financial record-keeping, sales strategies, marketing, innovation, taxes, performance analysis, and business formalization strategies. In addition to deepening the entrepreneurs’ understanding of core business concepts, the entrepreneurs also have access to immediate networking opportunities with other local business owners.
