Entrepreneurship and SME Management Training

The ILO approach to training for entrepreneurs - Sustainable Enterprises

The ILO assists governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations, and others in scaling up management training and establishing support systems to address the needs of SMEs. Over the years, it has developed considerable expertise, credibility, networks, tools and experience, notably with its Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB) programme for start-ups, micro and small entrepreneurs. SIYB has been used in 100 countries and, due mainly to its widespread adoption in China, has trained more than 4.5 million people and generated an estimated 2.7 million new jobs, making it one of the biggest programmes of its kind.
