It has been 15 years since we started SIP, and we have learned so much and even grown the business despite the pandemic.

Truly, signing up with SIP is a decision we will never regret.

SIP Abacus came as a silver lining in my life. I am enjoying the challenges involved in this business. And the heartiest satisfaction is felt watching kids turning into Human Calculators. Loving the feeling of being an Entrepreneur.

Harani Sip Abacus Wattala Sri Lanka
SIP Abacus has made a drastic change in all the students’ lives as well as mine. It’s a known fact that, the more your grow older you tend to forge things very frequently. But by teaching abacus it has broken the rule in my life. A teacher’s achievement is molding all his/her students to be fit in this society, nevertheless her great achievement is molding a student who’s is less than average to the level of experts. Students are more eager to learn SIP Abacus, since they enjoy learning it, the most feedback we’ve received from the parents are that their children are more spontaneous. And learning abacus has influenced children to eventually like or moreover love education specially mathematics. As a teacher & an LCL my focus is to create a bond between the students and education, which I’m pretty sure it’s working towards positivity.

Joy Mathews SIP Abacus Bahrain
Partnering with SIP Abacus was one of the best decisions taken in my life. We could establish ourselves as the number one abacus center in Bahrain in just two years with the constant support & guidance from team SIP. More important is that we could bring in positive changes in 100s of children in this short span. We thank Dinesh Victor and team SIP Abacus for their inspirational leadersip. I am confident that our partnership will grow in strength and together, we will be able to make substantial contributions towards the development of an empowered generation.

Do I need to lease a property or can I run it from a commercial venue like a library or a church?

Public commercial venues provide limited opportunities for centre branding, which would likely hinder how successful your SIP Abacus could be. Branding is critical to a centre’s success, so if you’re opening a franchise in bigger cities like Auckland, Hamilton, Christchurch, etc., we recommend that centres lease their own premises. If you’re opening a centre in smaller cities and towns, a commercial venue can be considered.

We’ve found that most successful franchisees have
leadership skills, enjoy working with children, have a propensity for maths and English, communicate effectively, are highly organised, possess some business savvy, like to be involved in the community, and enjoy learning.
