Why Great Emerged?

“GREAT ideas will come from the SMART people”

Historically, several financial institutions and training institutions are providing either loan support or training support separately without combining the two supports. As a result, the trained motivated entrepreneur when actually planning for a new venture difficult to find funding opportunities. Similarly, when a person could able to get funding or loan support, lack of technical, professional and marketing support preventing the new entrepreneurs to run small businesses on a sustainable way. Ultimately, the prime objectives of the training organization, financial institution and the desire of the new entrepreneur failed due to combined support services are not made available to the entrepreneurs coming forward to start the business.

Further GREAT affirm that by supporting the entrepreneurs among the local communities will create widespread impact on the local economy.
