Nearly 50 entrepreneurs benefited from the knowledge of experts at the Bliżejej Biznesu Academy. Its three editions took place in Lower Silesia at the end of October.
The Aasa Polska initiative
The initiative of Aasa Polska, specializing in the provision of installment loans for consumers and small business, met with great interest of local entrepreneurs. In an intimate atmosphere, they had the opportunity to meet with eight experts from the financial industry who shared their knowledge in the area of trademark reservation , legal protection of the company’s assets, legal aspects related to the conclusion of business contracts or issues related to factoring, leasing and long-term rental . Participation in the academy was free.
– Such initiatives are very valuable for people who want to learn about running a business, but do not know where to start. Equally important is the fact that the academy has been organized in smaller cities, where access to this type of training is limited – says Monika Krajnik, participant of the workshops in Jelenia Góra.
Academia participants also had the opportunity to get acquainted with the results of the survey “Needs of micro enterprises in the area of financing 2017”, implemented by the Smartscope institute for Aasa Polska *. Presented by Dominik Ciula, Sales Manager at Aasa Polska. According to the survey, up to half of companies intend to apply for financial support within the next year. The planned type of financing is primarily leasing as well as funds from the European Union. The business loan, a company credit card and an installment loan for business are also popular among entrepreneurs .
Aasa for business and workshops for entrepreneurs
By introducing the Aasa for Business product we were hoping to create something more than a business loan supporting the business. We wanted to act as an expert supporting the entrepreneur throughout the period of cooperation with us. Therefore, in addition to the financing itself, we are able to support it in terms of content in its everyday business life – says Dominik Ciula , Sales and Business Development Manager at Aasa Polska.
– Knowledge of being an entrepreneur requires constant training, searching for information, gaining experience. It’s all the daily bread of every person who deals with creating their own business every day. The idea of our meetings is just to enable this knowledge to be gained from market practitioners, people who are professionals in their fields – explains Rafał Tomkowicz, editor-in-chief of Bliżejej Biznesu .
* Research methodology “Micro enterprises needs in financing 2017”
The survey was conducted in October 2017 by Smartscope commissioned by Aasa Polska, CAWI and CATI methods, on a representative group of 1000 entrepreneurs from companies in which 1 to 9 people are employed.
