Our mission is to protect or create jobs through making SMEs learn to solve their business problems in addition to solving their business problems.
We launched in 2019 our Advantage program https://www.wfglobal.org/advantage/ which I lead in India and Middle East and mentor it globally. As part of the Advantage program, we are keen to help the SMEs to accelerate their top line, profitably and empower them in building their in-house capacity to maximise their growth potential. This is a disruptive and unique model that blends AI enabled, learning and consulting focused on growth oriented and eligible SMEs > $10 Mn revenue with a median employee size of 250.
The Foundation commits its resources on IP creation, deployment and platform team and curated network of ~100s of professionals to build Do It Yourself (DIY) analytical tools, knowledge and process material, AI-enabled technology platform, GENIE, and human assistance to SMEs.
We provide knowledge assets for the SMEs, free of cost to them. In addition, the curated network largely works on pro bono, subsidised or success fee based engagement model, should SMEs need deeper interventions by expert networks.
