South African entrepreneurs running green businesses have been invited to apply for a 10-month scholarship opportunity at GIBS Business School.
The programme runs from the end of November this year until September 2018, and allows entrepreneurs to develop business acumen and build critical business skills while continuing to develop their enterprises.
“Our focus is on addressing the high failure rates of entrepreneurs in South Africa by supporting startups, micro enterprises and small business owners that are under constraint. The green economy is one of our priority sectors,” said acting director of the Gordon Institute of Business Science’s (GIBS) Entrepreneurship Development Academy Sam Ngcolomba.
“This scholarship allows entrepreneurs providing solutions and services in the green economy to run their business and enjoy a practical business management education>”
The Small Business Boost 2.0 programme is open to entrepreneurs that have been in operation for two years or more, with a total of 100 scholarships available. Applications are open until October 31, though selection is taking place on a first-come-first-serve basis.
