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 running your own business demands.

Funded by the DBSA and other partners, we currently assist 110 entrepreneurs.
