Grow business by entering

2017-03-15 06:05

Aspiring entrepreneurs wanting to grow their business are invited to enter the SAB Foundation’s 2017 Tholoana Enterprise Programme. The closing date for entries for this year’s programme is Sunday (19/03). Selected candidates will benefit from a two-year programme of professional business development support.

Bridgit Evans of the foundation says they are targeting viable black-owned businesses who would like to be considered for the 2017 Tholoana Enterprise Programme. High potential SMEs will benefit from a unique combination of expert mentorship, skills training workshops, access to markets and qualified investment-readiness support, says Evans.

Evans says the programme primarily supports enterprises that benefit or are run by women, the youth and those living in rural and peri-urban areas. “A particular focus this year is on creating opportunities for entrepreneurs with disabilities, who are strongly encouraged to apply,” she says. If your business has been in operation for at least six months and less than five years, you may be eligible for consideration. Visit to review the selection criteria and apply.
