Achieving Business Sustainability
In an effort to address the challenge of succession planning, LEAP introduced its Business Leadership Programme through the support of the Ford Foundation in 2003. LEAP recognizes that while SME owners lack control over the external challenges in their sector, they are capable of addressing internal challenges. As a result, the organization equips business owners who runs SMEs with the skills and tools that are required to effectively and efficiently run organizations that will outline them.
Over the past ten years with continued collaboration with non profits, financial institutions and corporate organizations, LEAP has enabled entrepreneurs build businesses using our curriculum in ten states across Nigeria including Lagos, Kano, Calabar, Enugu and Abuja. We have coached about 1,107 entrepreneurs and inspired over 3,500 business executives. As part of our innovative curriculum, we equip businesses to institute systems and structures for long term sustainability.
