Apply now as “Good Things don’t come to those who wait!”

The ‘Good Things’ ethos – what you’ll need to participate:

What does entrepreneurship mean in the context of South Africa? Historic inequalities mean it’s not as easy as it appears. Success takes hard work and dedication, sleepless nights and perseverance. Even when you face unexpected challenges, do you have the drive to overcome them? If so, and you live in Gauteng, you might benefit from our bespoke support programme. You’ll need to be honest, realistic and determined.

At Sophiatown Bizcre8 we believe that Good Things don’t come to those who wait – we’re here to help you achieve your dreams, if you’ve got the passion and commitment that running your own business demands.

What’s Happening

 

Welcome To Our Journey!

Look forward to a unique Sophiatown collaborative experience true to its yesteryear! 

Sophiatown was famous for its defiance of the apartheid laws and a place where intellectuals, musicians, journalists, politicians, entrepreneurs and bohemians thrived. 

In keeping with this spirit, our upcoming ‘BREAKING THE DIVIDE’ event is the first in a series of networking experiences produced to realise our vision of a melting pot of diversity, conversation and entertainment amongst Johannesburg’s vibrant entrepreneurial communities. 

This November, a five speaker panel will discuss cross-overs and collaborations between South Africa’s two largest economies, Township and Urban / “Mainstream” economies: 

  1. How do we drive cross-collaboration between Township and “Mainstream” entrepreneurs? 
  2. How can township enterprises transfer their core competencies and innovations into the mainstream environments and flourish?
  3. In turn, how can what is “Mainstream” achieve success in a township economic ecosystem?

Breaking the Divide
