This programme supports black-owned small enterprises that benefit or are run by women, the youth, and those living in rural and peri-urban areas. It also offers eligible business owners the opportunity to participate in a two-year development programme. During this time they will receive:
  • one-on-one mentoring,
  • focused skills training workshops and
  • e-learning, access to markets, and
  • qualified investment-readiness support. 
Successful candidates will be part of a high-energy solution that has helped hundreds of businesses to accelerate their success.
