Background

After the COVID-19 pandemic, many small business owners realized the need to leverage digital tools and platforms for their businesses. However, many of them are either under-informed or wrongly informed of the exact step-by-step way to go about it. As a result of this, they see little to no progress with the use of online tools affecting their business growth and customer acquisition.

The Digital Business Bootcamp was a project aimed at sharing well-tested principles for business success by leveraging digital tools and platforms for digital marketing and customer acquisition. This increases their ability to meet and exceed their basic needs, and employ more people.
