The SAB Foundation has opened applications to the 2017 Tholoana Enterprise Programme to South African entrepreneurs who want to grow their businesses.
The SAB Foundation is searching for viable, black-owned businesses to take part in the two-year programme of professional business development support.
Accepted high potential SMEs will benefit from a combination of expert mentorship, skills training workshops, access to markets, and qualified investment-readiness support. T
The Tholoana Enterprise Programme primarily supports enterprises that benefit or are run by women, youth and those living in rural and peri-urban areas. A particular focus this year is to create opportunities for entrepreneurs with disabilities.
“We offer committed candidates an incredible opportunity to take their business to the next level. Our partnership with small business growth professionals, Fetola, boosts the long term sustainability of the participants in our programme, making it a highly impactful and sought-after solution for promising South African small businesses,” said Bridgit Evans of the SAB Foundation.
“We are looking for the very best candidates across all nine provinces, those whose enterprises have a proven business concept, a track record of trading, and long-term potential for growth.”
Businesses that have been in operation for between six months and five years are eligible, with applications closing on March 15.
