Valueselling South – About
The international sales consultancy Valueselling.be has launched an initiative to help entrepreneurs in developing countries. The consultants of Valueselling South provide volunteer-based business development support with a view to local capacity building.
Training and coaching programs are designed to enhance the sales skills and customer service of local entrepreneurs. These programs are executed with NGOs such as Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs, aBi, Via Don Bosco and Louvain Coopération.
The first project took place in Manzini, Swaziland, in 2010. In the Manzini Youth Care, a project for young entrepreneurs funded by the EU, the young entrepreneurs were trained in the skills needed to run a business, in the area of marketing, customer care, accounting and innovation and creativity. In collaboration with DMOS Salesians.
Valueselling South delivered training projects in Togo, Benin, South Africa, Peru, Uganda, Bolivia, and Cambodia.
Non-profit organisations have a commercial challenge. They need to sell their projects to donors and sponsors.
In order to get funding they need to make a business case.
