Following the festive celebrations of Dashain and Tihar, One to Watch recommences its business development services in the form of customized activities and master classes for the BUILD project. In the initial phase, One to Watch identified gaps and requirements for 20 SMEs, and we are now providing assistance to meet their business needs.
Navigating the legal requirements
In response to the increasing need for legal protection and compliance, the BUILD project is aiding SMEs in trademarking their brands and logos. Additionally, the project is fulfilling the much-needed demand for legal protection by walking the businesses through sector-specific legal requirements, such as obtaining DFTQC numbers.
Scoring low-hanging fruits with social media
Upon recognizing that SMEs were under-utilizing their social media, One to Watch is showcasing to businesses how they can leverage their social media to enhance their brand presence and marketing activities. To achieve this, we have conducted product photography sessions, assisted in formulating strategic social media campaigns, and either revamped or created websites for the SMEs.
Enabling Access to business finance
For those in search of additional funding to facilitate business growth, One to Watch is assisting SMEs to access the right source of funding. This includes guidance in planning capital restructuring strategies, ensuring accurate documentation for accessing bank loans, exploring various funded and non-funded support options, and facilitating networking opportunities with professionals who can assist in accessing additional funding.
