MENTORSHIP, COACHING, ACCESS TO MARKETS AND RESOURCE
Township entrepreneurs are not as exposed like urban entrepreneurs. Through the mentorship programme in partnership with WITS Business School we aim guide,coach, advise and capacitate them in their businesses. Mentors will include expert mentors, MBA students as well as retired industry experts.
EKASI ENTREPRENEURS ACADEMY – TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
Training and Development through the eKasi Entrepreneurs Academy is at the core of us grooming township entrepreneurs to run their businesses successfully. Internal workshops and master classes will be held in different townships in partnership with different strategic partners and institutions.
ONLINE BUSINESS TOOLS
Through the use of state of the art technology, eKasi Entrepreneurs will have ACCESS to platforms that will assist them in building their business plans, managing their businesses, connecting with mentors and experts that will advise them on their business as they grow. All these platforms can be accessed anywhere anytime.
“The significant participation and meaningful inclusion of the people of the township into mainstream economy of Gauteng through their own township enterprises that are supported by the government and big business will be one of the key game changers…The townships must be self sufficient and vibrant economic centres.”
Premier David Makhura, State of the Province Address (June 2014)
