When OTW first established its presence in Myanmar, most of our operations were centered around our annual flagship Enterprise Accelerator (formerly known as Rockstart Impact). After two years of working closely with local entrepreneurs, we have come to recognize the limitations of an intense 14-week investment preparation program. To better serve the varying needs of SGBs in different industries and stages of maturity/growth, OTW has been working on a new model that will provide customized services to impact-driven entrepreneurs who are preparing for investment.
With the goal of building a pipeline of investable/investment-ready Myanmar businesses, the "Business Development Services for Investment Readiness" Program offers services that will enable entrepreneurs to understand the existing gaps and opportunities in their business, develop a strategic plan to address these gaps, grow and professionalize their business, and attract investors. The program is broken down into four different services that build upon one another:
Phase 1: Business Mapping Services

Together with the eEntrepreneur, rs will consult with OTW consultants will to map out their business to help them gain a clear overview of their current financial standing and gain new insights into their business and opportunities for growth. in its current state, get their financial accounts in order, and develop a basic financial model and pitch deck.
