Do you have a viable, black-owned small business that would benefit from mentorship, training and business support? The SAB Foundation invites interested parties to apply to the 2016 Tholoana Enterprise Programme (one National call only for 2016).
Successful candidates will be part of a high-energy solution that has helped hundreds of businesses to accelerate their success. Wrap-around support, including expert mentorship, skills training workshops, access to markets, and qualified investment-readiness support, has been shown to improve the confidence and skills of entrepreneurs.
The Tholoana Enterprise Programme supports small enterprises that benefit – or are run by – women, the youth and those living in rural and peri-urban areas.
The SAB Foundation is especially keen to create opportunities for disabled entrepreneurs, who are strongly encouraged to apply. Similarly, applications are welcome from businesses working in new and/or growing sectors such as export, manufacturing, food processing, water, energy and waste management.
If you are an entrepreneur or business owner with a registered business (or in the process of registering) that has been in operation for at least six months and less than five years, you may be eligible for the programme. Click here to register and create an application online (only online applications will be accepted).
Applications open on 1 March and close at midday on 31 March 2016. Please click here for the Tholoana Enterprise Programme Information Brochure with the programme processes, requirements and eligibility criteria.
Also, please be sure to pass this great opportunity on to any friends and colleagues who you feel may be interested.
