Focus Business School began in 2008 in Yangon, Burma/Myanmar by founder Marco Strömberg. Marco has been a missionary in Asia and has a degree in business administration.
Focus Business School is a course in entrepreneurship based on Christian values.
The course contains 48 lessons and cover topics like “Bringing your personal finances into balance”, “How to prepare for and run a business” and “How to live with biblical values and ethics in business life.”
The teaching is simple and practical. It is especially adapted to those who haven´t started a business yet. And for those who have started a business it is remarkable to see the difference in the company between the start of the course and the end. We work towards a financial development with individuals and in societies.
We want to create opportunities for self-reliance, work-creating investment and community outreach, where there has previously been poverty. On many occasions we equip people who have previously received welfare and we turn them into entrepreneurs.
We focus especially towards groups with low income and social challenges.
We run FBS to support the creation of a new generation of entrepreneurs with a positive drive, good ethics and morals are needed in business and they create larger economic resources and work opportunities in their region.
We train local entrepreneurs to become teachers that run FBS and that they in their turn can spread the course to other locations and countries.
We are located in:
- Eastern Europe
- Middle East
- Northern Africa
- South America
