LightCastle Partners has recently signed a contract with B-SkillFUL to formally launch a year-long innovative blended finance program titled, “B-SkillFUL Programme Phase II (Building Skills for Unemployed and Underemployed Labour)” funded by the Embassy of Switzerland in Bangladesh and implemented by Swisscontact.
As part of the programme, LightCastle will create new opportunities for growth for 100 SMEs across the leather goods, furniture making and light engineering sectors, spread across districts such as Dhaka, Rangpur, Saidpur, Bhairab & Bogura.
LightCastle will provide a three-step process to implement the Blended Capital Program. First, analyze the capital raising capacity of SMEs by understanding business model, financials, competitive landscape, strategy, growth ambitions, pain points and mindset; second, connect SMEs to market and unlock financial opportunities via innovative equity-linked instruments and traditional financing sources; finally, develop the capacity to scale and retain growth capital.
