Foundation Launches App To Assist MSMEs
The Honey Bun Foundation has launched the Gapp App, a business diagnostic tool that will enable micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) to understand the areas of their business that require improvements.
The application, which was launched virtually on Wednesday, April 14, will be available on Android and IOS app stores free of charge.
It will make recommendations on how to fill the gaps identified through training, funding and assistance from business support organisations (BSOs) currently in the ecosystem. The links to these BSOs are built into the app to be accessed directly.
Each business with a registered account on the app can complete the survey once a month, and this will give them time to address the issues identified in each attempt. These results will also be available in the app for periodic reference.
Speaking at the virtual launch, State Minister in the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Dr. the Hon. Norman Dunn, said that the app can be a valuable instrument for MSMEs globally.
