Finally--a way to help small businesses that's efficient, cost-effective, and convenient. ESchool's remote businesss coaching is B-school for entrepreneurs.
Our groundbreaking programs are designed and implemented by international business and development experts who understand the unique needs and challenges of developing-nation microenterprises.
We coach entrepreneurs in weekly remote sessions via an internet platform. There are no travel or meeting costs for anyone involved.
We work in small groups of four to provide personalized coaching at a lower cost than individual mentoring.
We know our stuff. We're senior BDS experts who specialize in international development, and we have extensive private sector business experience. We work only with entrepreneurs in developing countries.
We leverage technology, including an online meeting platform, a proprietary user-friendly online EPlan business plan template, and our cloud-based financial software, Lean Projections. Management teams can collaborate online and easily access their plans and financials anytime.
Our learning approach is highly interactive and practical. Live sessions are mostly discussion and individual feedback. Between sessions participants complete worksheets in the context of their own businesses.
We provide each entrepreneur with personalized business advisory and actionable feedback they don't get anywhere else. This is how entrepreneurs succeed.
EFour ESchool is priced attractively to enable client organizations to help as many startups and SMEs as possible. Organizations can expand the number of enterprises they work with, enhance the skills of their current entrepreneurs, or support businesses they normally wouldn't have the resources to help.
Proposals are provided after a needs assessment is conducted with the client organization. We ensure that the right program is selected for the entrepreneurs' skill level, and tailor the program if needed. Our goals are successful outcomes, client satisfaction, and delighted business owners.
Clients may choose to share the cost with their entrepreneurs to encourage ownership of the process.

"The five-week online business program ECoaching was incredible. Thankful to our facilitators Donna Rosa and Arun and also the OECS for making this possible. Both the marketing and financial sections have given me more knowledge and insight.
Most significantly, the ECoaching financial tracker has been a great accounting and bookeeping model for my business, which was one of my main challenges. I would surely recommend this course to other entrepreneurs like myself especially in the creative industries."
