Our Approach


We empower Trainer-Mentors all over the world. These community-based facilitators then offer the Micro-MBA (Managing Business Activities) course to the local people in their own languages.

The Micro-MBA Course


The Micro-MBA course comprises 8 simple workbooks which are based on what works at grassroots in micro and small business. The classroom component is run over about 5 days and this is followed by  at least 3 months of mentoring.

Brief History


Starting in 1987, the course was initially developed over a period of 6 years and it has been been updated at regular intervals since then.

About us


32 years of experience with nearly 200 000 emerging entrepreneurs has taught us many things.

In the process, we have become the gurus at what does not work in micro and small business development! (We've also learned a few things that do work).

Micro-MBA is International!


"We did research in many nations to find a program that could empower people to escape from poverty. I was introduced to Cedric in 2007 and we launched the program in Latin America in 2017 when he trained 21 trainers from 9 different countries.

We are excited to be rolling out this effective training in Latin America and in Spanish communities in USA". Dr Andres Panasiuk (Compas Latino).



Since 1991 we have experienced much joy in seeing 1000s of emerging entrepreneurs being empowered by means of Micro-MBA. We’ve also had some recognition from:

1. World Economic Forum in 2007;

2. Africa Growth Institute in 2010;

3. Forging Enterprise/Dept of Trade & Industries in 2015.
