What You Can Expect from this Excercise
Enugu State MSME Data Collection Exercise
The primary goal is to gather comprehensive data about the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) operating in Enugu State. This information will help to understand the unique challenges, needs, and dynamics of the MSME ecosystem in the region, and will inform the development of targeted interventions and support mechanisms to foster the growth and sustainability of these businesses.
The data includes basic information about the business such as its name, address, and industry, as well as more detailed information like the number of years the business has been in operation, the number of employees, registration status, types of products or services offered, main customers, major challenges faced, annual turnover, and the use of digital tools or platforms for business operations.
The data will be used to inform the creation of the Enugu MSME & Startup Ecosystem Development Report. This report will provide valuable insights that will guide strategic interventions for the growth and sustainability of MSMEs in the state.
The Exercise aligns with several key policies and programs, including the National Policy on MSME Development, the National Digital Ecosystem Policy and Strategy (2020-2030), the mandatory implementation processes required in the State Adoption of the National Startup Act (2022), and the strategic MSME & Startup Ecosystem development program outlined in the Manifesto of His Excellency, Dr. Peter Mbah
