Under these extraordinary circumstances that we currently face, there is no doubt that any business must learn to evolve and adapt along with the changing times.
Here are a few initiatives being offered by finance and investment sector giants such as Goldman Sachs and Natwest - to support businesses across the world, but in particular to entrepreneurs. Providing easily accessible content and resources such as free courses and webinars, these are valuable opportunities for small business owners to take this time to expand their knowledge and keep up-to-date with current business insights and advice.
Goldman Sachs has recently announced that in light of the challenges currently faced by female small business owners globally, they have digitised their offering - and in this moment of need, are making this new course free to any woman around the world who could benefit from the course.
The course is immediately accessible, for free, to any learner.
Learners are now able to take any course, or combination of courses, that suits their immediate needs (the courses offer lessons and practical advice on a variety of topics like marketing, leadership, operations and financing).
The course has also been made available in three languages – English, Spanish and Portuguese.
