SME incubator’s excellence rewarded

2012-08-29 00:00

BUSINESS incubation firm Raizcorp has been named by the Small Firms Enterprise Development Initiative (Sfedi) as a centre of excellence in Africa

At a celebration function, Raizcorp CEO Allon Raiz recounted how the vision started all of 12 years ago.

“Our dream was to create an environment that would provide entrepreneurs a place where they could thrive in spite of the job shedding and negative employment,” said Raiz.

He said they were honoured by Sfedi’s recognition, especially as it meant Raizcorp’s small enterprise development systems, processes and learning content had been assessed against international best practices.

Raizcorp marketing manager Jeanne Renou said this was proof that they offered learning “of the highest international quality”.
