OUR SERVICES

Mentorship

Learn, Nurture, Thrive

Business mentorship is one of the most proven ways to increase the chances of success for small businesses and entrepreneurs. A business mentor can truly share wisdom with you on an ongoing basis, and in a manner that can have a direct, positive impact on the growth of your business over time. The generic business advice you'll get from online publications will only go so far, and a good business mentor picks up right where that leaves off.

Business Management

Finances, Operations, Markets

As a business manager, you are given the major responsibility of managing administrative tasks for a business. As a new business, you will have to learn about marketing and sales. You will need to learn to perform a budget analysis in order to find out ways that the company can cut costs. You should have an astute understanding of accounting, marketing and administrative procedures that are required in order to run a business.

Funding Assistance

Investors, Funding, Networking

Finding funding channels can be an incredibly difficult task. In our current global economic crisis, even more so. Having access to private and government investors, angel investors, funding schemes, start-up competitions and networks is more important than ever. But where do you start? Our team of experts have years’ worth of experience and contacts in all industries to point you in the right direction, and help you refine your pitch to increase your chances of securing that much needed funding.

Community Interaction

Engage, Add value, Give back

At PM Skillshouse Foundation, we believe that empowering our communities through skills development is paramount to sowing a sustainable future. Every action we take has a reverberating impact on the world around us. By engaging with the local community, helping with food and water distribution, basic education and quality-of-life improvements, all businesses should strive to contribute in a positive way. We seek to actively live out this conviction in everything we do.
