VIVA - SA Entrepreneurs day!
This weeks sees the launch of a hopefully extremely successful Entrepreneurs Day in three South African cities.
The Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda), in partnership with the Department of Trade & Industry (dti), will host the first Entrepreneurs Day based on a successful Belgian model in Gauteng, Limpopo and the Western Cape on the 22nd of October. The model which has also been extremely successful in the UK with the twice annual B-Startup exhibitions taking place twice a year to packed exhibition halls, will see a wide range of entrepreneurial service providers recruiting onlookers to make use of their services.
These events not only showcases what is on offer as far as entrepreneurial services are concerned but also provide a most wonderful opportunity for entrepreneurs to network and share ideas with both potential clients and each other. Having been involved with similar events in both South Africa, the UK, France and Germany over the last decade I believe that with the entrepreneurial passion already present in South Africa that it is likely t become a very popular and effective annual entrepreneurial gathering.
