Networking, Capacity building
The ISIF Asia secretariat engaged JFDI to provide a 3-week GoGlobal Program for the two scale-up grant recipients Khushi Baby (India) and the the Myanmar Book Aid and Preservation Foundation (Myanmar).
JFDI briefed the two teams remotely before they came to Singapore for three weeks from 2-23 December 2016. Rather than following a fixed curriculum, the program began by capturing the goals for both teams and then scheduling a customised series of meetings, introductions and mentoring sessions.
Both teams left Singapore with concrete, specific sustainable business models that they could implement and, through JFDI, direct contact to people and organizations who could help them achieve commercial sustainability.
