In a concerted effort to fortify the business acumen and performance of its partners in Kenya, multi-category app Glovo successfully conducted the second cohort of its Learning & Development Training exercise. This initiative, aimed at empowering over 2000 partner shops and restaurants, exemplifies Glovo’s commitment to fostering a community of thriving entrepreneurs.
Delivered in collaboration with Ongoza Institute, an accelerator for early-stage high-growth young entrepreneurs in Kenya, the training aimed to enhance the skills and overall capabilities of Glovo’s partners. Following the success of the inaugural training held in Kenya, the company plans to expand these developmental sessions, conducting them quarterly and incorporating participant feedback for continuous improvement.
Sébastien Pellion, Head of Impact and Sustainability at Glovo, emphasized the broader impact of the initiative, stating, “At Glovo, our commitment to impact and sustainability goes beyond business. By nurturing the skills of our partners, we are fostering a community of entrepreneurs who understand the importance of creating positive, lasting change.”
Loreen Wanjiru, Program Lead at Ongoza, expressed gratitude for the collaboration, saying, “We are honored to have partnered with Glovo to deliver this training program for its partners to elevate their businesses. Glovo has shown great support to its partners to ensure their businesses succeed.”
The company envisions these training programs as a catalyst for building a collaborative community of thriving entrepreneurs within its network. As Glovo continues to expand its footprint and enhance its offerings, the focus on empowering local partners remains central to its growth strategy.
