Retail Entrepreneurship Development Program – REDP

Monday August 24, 2020 – Friday August 28, 2020



Retail Entrepreneurship Development Program – REDP is a program of the Retail Academy designed for individuals who are considering starting and running their own retail businesses and individuals who are already running a retail business but are not really achieving the goals they set out to achieve and desires a turnaround. Non-retail SMEs will also benefit from the program.

Your dream of starting a retail business is set to become a reality. It may take a lot of initial work as you start your own business, but with the right foundation, planning and support systems, anyone can achieve their goals.

This program will answers such questions as: What can I profitably sell? How do I raise capital? How many staff do I need and how do I get them? How can I serve the different types of customers? How can I ever compete with already established retailers? How do I set my prices? What are the possible problems that I may encounter and how can I overcome them? Where will I source my products? Where will I source equipment and which equipment are the best for my type of retail business? Should I sell online?

It will also provide answers to business challenges such as: I don’t know what is happening to my business. I am just pumping in money and there is no commensurate result. My sales staff are just stealing my goods and I am thinking of closing it down. What can I do? What must I do?

Whether you are thinking of starting a business or seeking a turnaround, REDP is the perfect program for you. It will provide you with the “how to” of starting and managing a retail business and/or achieving that turnaround you so much desire. REDP will give you a strong foundation for developing requisite knowledge, skills and attitude for a starting and running a successful retail business.

Earning a certificate from the Retail Academy therefore is an investment in your future. Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality of education, the best preparation for your retail entrepreneurship success, and the greatest opportunity for an exciting, fulfilling and rewarding retailing life.
