How it works
Leading brands will be invited to become 'National Funders' of the 'Launch my Start-up' initiative and fund a small business or a number of small businesses for the one-year 'Launch my Start-up Accelerator Programme'.
This initiative maximizes a funders B-BBEE and transformation objectives, utilising available Enterprise and Supplier Development funding, ensuring compliance to the Revised Codes of Good Practice and full recognition of the available points on the B-BBEE scorecard.
For small businesses who are looking to increase their market share, this initiative is the stepping stone to success. This is not a 'quick fix' in the form of a capital injection. This is powered towards 'bigger picture thinking' and long-term growth, and include components such as access to markets, funding readiness and access to finance, supplier readiness and access to suppliers, formalising the business structure, mentorship and support from experts in the field.
