The business case for a Raizcorp SEED licensee
Below are just a few of the reasons to embark on a Raizcorp SEED licensing agreement.
Doing good and doing well
The ultimate aim of all Raizcorp programmes is to move entrepreneurs to the next level in their entrepreneurial journeys (see our Enterprise Development Continuum below). Every programme is designed to reduce the level of dependence on the programme over time, thus creating a truly empowered entrepreneur. As an example, Raizcorp uses guiding instead of mentoring as an engagement methodology. While mentoring makes use of telling and doing, guiding assists the entrepreneur to identify options and their consequences. Entrepreneurs choose their direction and implement it themselves.
The premium brand
Raizcorp is widely regarded as the premium brand in business incubation globally. In fact, The Economist views Raizcorp as the only genuine incubator in Africa. As such, our SEED licensees can be proud to associate with the brand and be secure in the knowledge that Raizcorp has the ability to execute on any opportunity – large or small – that may present itself.
Raizcorp as an equal partner
As a sign of our commitment, Raizcorp will become an equity partner in the local SEED licensee entity, funding all capital requirements on an equal basis. This investment ensures that our SEED licensees are less financially exposed to the risk of setting up a new business and are instilled with confidence that our interests are aligned into the future.
