Women entrepreneurs in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv are invited to take part in a financial management training hosted by the Kyiv Business Support Centre, set up by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) under the EU4Business initiative of the European Union. The ‘Keys to financial management’ training takes place from 19-22 April.

The training is based on best international practices translated into Ukrainian specifics and with in-depth expert knowledge. The course is interactive, and includes practical exercises and real examples.
During the 4 days of training, participants will learn:
• How to understood from financial reporting what is actually happening with your business?
• What to do to make your profit bigger and bigger?
• How to compile and meet a plan?
• How to identify risks? Is it possible to mitigate them?
• How to develop a financial management system?
• How to choose the source of business financing?
• What key skills are needed to negotiate with banks, venture companies and business angels?
The EU-funded Network of Business Support Centres project aims to improve the competitiveness and bankability of Ukrainian SMEs through the provision of business advice and capacity building. It also supports BSOs in 15 regions of Ukraine in setting up a network of EU4Business Business Support Centres (BSCs). At least 30,000 SMEs and entrepreneurs will benefit from the project.
The EBRD also implements another EU4Business programme, Women in Business, which helps women-led SMEs to access the finance and the know-how they need to grow. Under the programme, the EBRD provides access to finance through credit lines to local banks dedicated to women-led SMEs, alongside business advice to help businesses become more competitive. The programme also offers training, mentoring and other support to enable women entrepreneurs to share experiences and learn from each other.
