We are proud that module 2 of our capability program CAP7 has successfully taken place. In a half-day virtual meeting the Asian and the European parts of the team discussed the business plan for a new learning center in Angroka, Cambodia. The outcomes serve as base for the investor pitch in module 3.
The international team managed to answer details of important aspects of the social business plan for setting up the new learning center in Angroka and mobile learning centers in Takeo province. Especially the Cambodian participants got engaged better, discussed productively, and gained more insights into the program compared to the first meeting. This was a remarkable step towards better collaboration in a culturally very diverse team. BOOKBRIDGE conducts an Asian-European program for the first time and is very excited about the progress so far. Participants shared their opinions and offered many information to the Europeans. They also reflected on the quality of the cooperation between the local and European team over the last six weeks and how to improve it.
There will be more meetings via working groups and our online collaboration platform teamwork to prepare the investor pitch where the investors need to be convinced of the business plan. The next virtual meeting is scheduled in mid-January. The atmosphere of the meeting was relaxed and pressure-free so that everyone seems to be ready to get to the next proceed to the next level of CAP7.
