LightCastle Partners, in collaboration with a2i and Bangladesh Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BWCCI), has recently signed a contract with Meta, the parent company of Facebook, to accelerate the growth of Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) by educating SMBs on the use of digital platforms through Meta’s SheMeansBusiness Program.
LightCastle, a2i, and BWCCI will support Meta by conducting a needs assessment of SMBs on the use of digital tools for businesses. The study will generate actionable knowledge on the current digital commerce policies and the use of digital tools by businesses in Bangladesh. Furthermore, LightCastle, a2i, and BWCCI will provide capacity development on the use of digital tools for businesses to SMBs. They will also help promote policy advocacy for digital commerce to create more opportunities for businesses.
