Start-up businesses invited to Philippi for career development

2016-06-23 06:00

The South African Breweries’ flagship enterprise development programme, in partnership with Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda) and SAB KickStart is on a month-long recruitment campaign in this Youth Month.

Using a new and innovative #StartupTruck, it travels across the country on a youth entrepreneurship drive to find South Africa’s promising young entrepreneurs.

The campaign is looking for entrepreneurs and innovators between the ages of 18 and 35 years.

We will call on those with business ideas and existing start-ups to apply for the SAB KickStart Ignite and Boost programmes, respectively.

Entries into the two programme opened on 1 June and close on 15 July 2016. Successful applicants stand the chance of winning a share of R9-million in business development support and incubation.

The #StartupTruck will be in Phillipi at the Philippi Village, Cwangco Crescent, on Friday, 24 June from 09h00.

We are calling on all young people with innovative business ideas to come and pitch their ideas to a panel of judges.

Those with existing qualifying businesses and entering SAB KickStart Boost are invited to submit their entry forms at the #StartupTruck.
