Sinapis: The Road to an Entrepreneurs’ Success Journey

By Vera Shawiza / July 13, 2017

In the business world, every entrepreneur needs to have that one person who will be looking out for them any all times, especially in the time of need.

Entrepreneurship is all about having the needed resources in place depending on the area of expertise, then going forward to implement an idea into reality.

With the best support mechanism in place, entrepreneurs find it easy to sail through the journey. And this is one of the key reasons that led to the existence of Sinapis. They ensure that they have nurtured ones’ idea from the start up to that point of being a strong business.

The main mission for the existence of Sinapis is to empower aspiring entrepreneurs in the developing world with innovative, scalable business ideas by providing them with a rigorous Christ-centered business education, world-class consulting and mentoring services and access to seed capital. This means that they were striving to create ethical business leaders, sustainable employment and an improved quality of life for many that we may glorify God in service of His people.

Sinapis mainly focus on Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), which are generally more formalized businesses and have a higher annual turnover. This is because they needed to fill a gap not currently being met by the micro-finance industry and the traditional banking sector.

Unlike other non-profits who focus on mature SMEs, Sinapis focuses exclusively on SMEs in their earliest stages, typically when they are still just an idea. They believe that the entrepreneur’s abilities are often of more consequence than the business idea itself. Thus, while most organizations provide only financial capital with very little business training and support, Sinapis provides a holistic training program specifically designed for early stage entrepreneurs.

Sinapis supports entrepreneurs with innovative, scalable business ideas by providing intensive business training, access to financing and exposure to Christ-centered business principles that equip them to triumph over ethical challenges. As these entrepreneurs become successful in business, they create sustainable jobs and help alleviate poverty. With this success comes greater societal influence to transform the business culture for the glory of God and the opportunity to disciple others to do the same.
