Through the Start and Improve Your Buisness (SIYB) program, these programs have successfully supported leadership education in Myanmar. SIYB has become one of the premier Myanmar based companies in the field of senior executive education, with over 1000 coaches ('51% women') and more than 16,200+ businessmen ('55% women'), creating 1,234 new companies and 7,387 employees.
In order to reach these results, the aim of the programme is to develop partnership with the main players in SME developments, such as the Department for SME Developments of the Ministry of Industry, the GIZ, which offers supplementary economic trainings and important (I)NGOs and microfinance organisations involved in SME advancement. The funds from Norway and Switzerland will be used to pursue measures to increase and encourage the use of humane work in small and medium-sized enterprises and to improve their efficiency and working environment.
