Our amazing team has lots of passion and a proven track record of supporting entrepreneurs and business leaders.
In 2017, our CEO Catherine Wijnberg realised that despite R32 billion per year being spent on small business incubator and accelerator programmes, businesses were not growing, nor were they creating jobs on a significant scale in South Africa.
We found that businesses needed practical, relevant and personalised support to grow. The challenge was how to provide this support at scale.
So, the team set out to solve this challenge.
The only way to do this is through helping to grow sustainable, long-lasting small businesses. Global statistics prove that small businesses are the most significant creator of jobs. It is here that self-empowered futures are created.
Aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the South African government’s National Development Plan, we aim to help eliminate poverty and reduce inequality by 2030.
This requires the creation of up to 11 million jobs in South Africa alone.
