There is a real need for entrepreneurial business coaching and mentorship in South Africa. This is evident in the number of emails I receive on a weekly basis from people asking for help and assistance with starting their own businesses.
I don’t have the capacity to help even a fraction of the people approaching me, but I can assist by pointing you in the direction of people or organisations who are qualified and in a position to provide the help you need.
I would like to introduce you to the Awethu Project and I suggest that you contact them for a place on their Business Incubation Programme.
Awethu Project is created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. We’re using entrepreneurship to build the country we all want to live in…a fair country, in which every South African has the opportunity to realise their potential. We’re the most innovative SMME investment company in South Africa. We flexibly combine ideas, people, and capital, to build the fast-growing SMMMEs South Africa needs.
The Incubation Programme
Awethu Project provides a 6 month business incubation programme for new and existing businesses. We assist entrepreneurs to formalise their businesses and ensure their sustainability post incubation.
We achieve this by providing the following services:
- Mentorship/business coaching
- Mini business course
- Access to funding
- Access to markets
- Networking opportunities
- Access to our boundry partners
Social media fireworks
The incubator is currently on a drive to recruit 600 entrepreneurs during the month of July. To achieve this we are embarking on a Social Media Fireworks to create awareness among our target market.
