Shoemakers, tailors, bakers—these small business owners are usually experts at their craft, but that doesn’t mean they automatically know everything about running a business. Dialogue on Business (DOB) is a classroom-based business education program designed to help low-income entrepreneurs gain the skills they need to succeed in their enterprises and grow their businesses.
In 2016, Accion and FedEx launched a two-year initiative to create a digital version of this award-winning program to use in Colombia. By bringing the DOB program online, we can make the program more cost effective to deliver, more flexible, and more easily accessible for a broader audience.
