What works for sustainability in entrepreneurship training delivery?

Short description

To launch the new ILO Guide on "What works for sustainability in entrepreneurship training delivery? A guide for practitioners based on lessons from ILO’s SIYB programme”, the ILO’s Global SIYB team organized a webinar sharing lessons learned from 30+ years of experience in start-up and MSME business management training in over 100 countries. At the centre of the discussion is the issue of financial sustainability and the question of ‘who pays’ for provision of trainings to entrepreneurs after projects come to an end.
