The Department of Economic Development’s Enterprise Development Unit, the Joburg Market Opportunity Centre and Old Mutual will hold a workshop on Friday, 01 September 2023, for small, medium and micro enterprises.
It will take place at Metro Centre, 158 Civic Boulevard, in Braamfontein from 8am to 2pm.
The workshop will offer participants insights into running a successful business, particularly when dealing with tender documents.
Participants will be exposed to effective tendering applications including writing, submitting a clear and compelling tender submission, interpreting and understanding the tender requirements and many more.
Akona Bovula, the Manager at the Opportunity Centre, said the collaboration with Old Mutual’s SMEgo will provide practical and hands-on guidance that empower participants to tackle these challenges head-on.
“We recognise the challenges that entrepreneurs and businesses face when it comes to managing financial paperwork, especially within the context of tender documents. This workshop is a manifestation of our commitment to supporting local businesses and individuals in their growth journey,” said Bovula.
The workshop is targeted at small businesses that face challenges in applying for tenders and are seeking alternate avenues for financial support.
Bovula said participants will also receive an introduction to the range of financial assistance programmes offered through Old Mutual SMEgo.
“They will be guided on how to effectively navigate the platform, including creating an account, submitting relevant information, and applying for the various financial assistance options available within the application.”
