HCM CITY — Asian Development Bank (ADB) has selected MVV Education’s two technologies, Consultant Anywhere and Everlearn, to implement a COVID-19 business counseling and training programme for 500 women-owned small- and medium-sized enteprises (WSMEs) in Việt Nam.
The programme will focus on providing tools to improve their capacity management capacity and skill sets to run their businesses successfully during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The lack of specialised business training programmes has created barriers for Vietnamese WSMEs to be recognised and represented, even though they play a key factor in economic development.
The programme aims to give them training in various business aspects, financial advisory services, and technical knowledge to mitigate the impact of the economic downturn.
Components of the programme include recruitment with screening and registration for WSMEs, business counseling using the Consultant Anywhere app, offline and online training using the Everlearn platform, and mentoring with peer support using the team’s network.
The training programme for WSMEs includes 12 modules, focusing on business and financial knowledge, building a business plan, action planning in HR management, operating costs management, and re-engineering products and customer service, among others. All are expected to help enterprises respond to the COVID-19 situation effectively.
In addition to strong technical capabilities, MVV has partnered with Women’s Initiative for Start-up Entrepreneurship (WISE) to provide subject-matter experts in various fields. They are well-known business consultants with experience working with numerous authorities and global businesses.
The team is represented nationwide and has performed consulting projects in most cities and provinces in Viet Nam, of which many of them were female-owned small and medium-sized businesses.
MVV is a provider of business and capacity building solutions uniquely delivered through multiple platforms that enable fully-integrated and seamless online and onsite interactions. — VNS
