Business Partners SME Toolkit SA Global Entrepreneurship Week’s Business Plan Competition for Aspiring Young Entrepreneurs has announced Nosisa Ndabandaba of Supriim Vegan, Western Cape regional winner for 2016.

This was at a ceremony held in Cape Town. Now in its 7th year, the competition, which is open to individuals between the ages of 18 and 35, aims to have a positive impact on promising South African entrepreneurs by bridging the gap between simply having an idea, to actually launching a start-up business.

After entering the free-to-enter competition, young entrepreneurs took part in one of 12 regional business workshops across the country on the intricacies of compiling a business plan and managing the many functions of running a business. Following the workshop, each entrant was invited to submit a business plan to the competition judging panel.

“Cape Town local Nosisa Ndabandaba’s business plan was selected based on her innovation in capitalising on the fast-growing healthy eating trend by providing wholesome vegan and gluten-free snacks to those seeking tasty, environmentally-friendly food,” says Christo Botes, executive director at Business Partners.

“Who doesn’t love the feeling of getting to ‘cheat’ a little? At Supriim Vegan you’ll be able to do just that, without having to feel guilty five minutes later,” says Nosisa.

Starting with an outlet in Cape Town’s city centre, this health conscious entrepreneur aims to delight customers with “junk food with a clean and healthy twist” by sourcing all her organic ingredients locally and providing a 100% vegan alternative where very few options currently exist.

In addition, customers will be given the opportunity to get creative by choosing which ingredients and combinations they want in their snacks.

The competition received 347 entries initially, and, after completion of the 12 workshops, 99 business plans were submitted for judging.

Eight regional winners will be selected over the next two weeks from across the country, and will then contend for the overall national title in Johannesburg.
