This initiative will benefit approximately one million micro, small, and medium-scale business owners, equipping them with the 11 building blocks of the Mansmith Business Model Map tool. The Mansmith Business Model Map has been proven to help many businesses adapt and thrive amidst challenges and uncertainties.
