The scope of growth for this sector is enormous; however, the presence of several challenges, especially the lack of knowledge on several business specific elements, prevents this. A major roadblock we identified was that several MSMEs did not know where to source information from. Through the mojoVersity platform, we aim to democratise knowledge transfer by making available course content that will help small business owners learn and be more aware of the nuances required to run and sustain a business.”
