A lot of people have exceptional ideas but their challenge has always been funding. Is it possible to raise money for your project, your business? Are there creative , strategic ways to raise money? What are the conceptualization and articulation processes involved in developing winning, multimillion business plans and proposal?
The truth is that there are a number of funding sources. The challenge is that YOU DON’T KNOW. You don’t know where or how to access these funds. The truth is that World Bank and many funding agencies have set aside billions to fund entrepreneurs and NGOs. The challenge is that you don’t know. In Nigeria, my country, Billions of Naira is set aside for SMEs (Small And Medium Enterprises)
Now even if you know where these funds are, do you know what to do to access these GRANTS or even loans? *Note 1, GRANTS are funds you receive and don’t pay back.* *Note 2, there are also Non-interest Loans available to entrepreneurs in Nigeria – and across the world.*
That is where I come in.
For those who know me, you know that I have preached ENTREPRENEURSHIP for not less than 7 years. So I can have great ideas and suggestions for you; suggestions that I believe that can REALLY WORK FOR YOU.
Here is one of my most favorite quote. I quoted it at the YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS SUMMIT in Abuja last week. It says: “When a man of an authentic, fool-proof, sound, question-answering BUSINESS PLAN meets a man of MONEY and RESOURCES exchange invariably occurs.” Think about it.
A sound plan ATTRACTS INVESTORS. Money flows into well drafted and articulated ideas. Now note this: IF YOUR IDEA IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO ATTRACT INVESTORS TO FUND IT, THEN IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO BE CALLED A GOOD IDEA.
Smart guys AUTHENTICATE their ideas. They develop attention-grabbing, investors-chasing ideas and plans.
Investors crave for information. How WINNING is your business plan? Do you know that your business plan is supposed to be a sales letter? Can you write a convincing sales letter?
Your business plan is everything. I am now processing a loan worth several millions with BANK OF INDUSTRY. I recently just won the YOUWIN BUSINESS PLAN COMPETITION. And for your information, my plan got me the maximum N10 Million.
So I can help you friends – at least give you information that can guide you.
A Nigerian proverb says: “Mumu no dey ask for help.Him dey claim too know”. I think that is a smart quote in pidgin. Seek mentors, coaches and teachers. Attend seminars. Pay for them, if you have to. Leaders see what you don’t see. Some people Know what you don’t know. If you really that intelligent you will not be where you are today. That is why I AM CONSTANTLY LEARNING AND UPGRADING. I have a number of mentors. I still pay for seminars. You should too
There are so many funding opportunities for farmers and entrepreneurs that I know and that I can share. Let me give another hint. Do you know that there is a NIGERIAN HOUSING FINANCE PROGRAM that is giving very good houses at a ridiculously cheap amount, spread over a period of time? The details are with me and a number of many business consultants.
