The first component will be to i) review the SEI, ii) to propose both financial and technical indicators to assess the financial and technical performance of small and medium scale seed businesses, and iii) to propose enhancements to the SEI as a tool for assessing and monitoring performance towards financial sustainability.
The second component will be to i) identify potential sources and types of non-grant funding for small and medium scale seed companies, ii) identify the financial and technical indicators that financial providers require as part of the due diligence process prior to lending, and iii) identify technical assistance needs of small and medium scale seed companies to develop and provide the financial and technical information that will attract non-grant funding.
The second component will be undertaken both virtually and through visits to selected financial institutions.
