This August sees the return of the annual Small Business week coming to Cape Town in South Africa. This popular event, organised by The City of Cape Town and the Provincial Government of the Western Cape, sees thousands of entrepreneurs, small business owners and companies serving small business gather in the beautiful surroundings of Cape Town and Table mountain.
One organisation that exhibits at Small Business Week, South African Business Hub, http://www.sabusinesshub.co.za,/ says that it is the ideal event for entrepreneurs to meet. Said Ben Botes, head of e-commerce at SA Business Hub, “with the small business industry really booming in South Africa and entrepreneurs from all industries and walks of life being at these type of events, it’s the ideal place for us to find out more about our customers and for them to find out more about how we can support them.”
Small Business Week serves as a high profile one-stop business extravaganza, and provides a platform for showcasing developmental initiatives, providing direct contact with the small business community and networking opportunities with influential personalities. Some of the other things to see at the event includes, business opportunities, including access to finance (financial institutions), market access and business development opportunities. Entrance to the event is FREE and open to the public upon registration in the Small Business Week database.
