Business Hub & Enterprisation

Graduate Training Program

SAICA and Dept of Economic Development co-financed a project we delivered from 2012 to mid-2014. This project mirrored the Fasset funded Bonani Work-Readiness Program (See more about the Bonani program here) of past years with an entrepreneurial bias. We started a new project for SAICA/ED in 2013 which completed mid-2014. This project was for 270 graduates for Business Hubs that are in turn linked to “SEFA” the Small Enterprise Funding Agency. These projects were delivered in 4 cities.

The intention of Enterprisation is:

  • To create a self-sustaining entity
  • Provide employment opportunities for graduates
  • Provide a full suite of business services to the SME market
  • Allows access services and advice
  • Ensures the sustainability and enhanced performance of these businesses
  • Enables them to operate successfully
  • Creates wealth and alleviate unemployment
