Product / Program Development
SME Advisory Authorities play a pivotal role in supporting the SME (Small & Medium Enterprises) ecosystem. SME Authorities and other players in the government ecosystem offer support programs and grants to help foster the SME sector growth, and thus diversify the economy. These programs typically help SMEs through their entire journey right from developing a business idea and starting the business, to growing and strengthening it, and even taking it to the global stage.
D&B has a good grasp of the local market, it also tracks innovations and global success stories very closely. We have been called upon to design, develop and implement several such programs in the GCC region. Some of the key programs developed by D&B for SME development entities in the region are:
Business Advisory Support (business set-up, feasibility studies, etc.)
Business Incubator Support Program.
Franchise Development Support Program.
Entrepreneurship Leave Program.
SME 5S and Lean Transformation Support Program
SME Local & International Market Access Support Grants
Entrepreneurship for people with disability support program
SME Export Advisory Support & Grants
