Did you know that every year,
more than R25 billion are available to entrepreneurs in South Africa?
Unfortunately, most applications to the funding agencies are declined.
This is because most people take an incorrect approach to business planning and creation, and don’t really understand what the funding institutions are looking for. Organisations like, DTI, SEDA, and IDC are there to assist entrepreneurs and the South African economy, but can’t really do so if the business ventures are not viable.
This interactive workshop will help you to gain a solid understanding of:
- The process of applying for loans and grants
- The requirements of programmes
- The key criteria of the different agencies
- How to adjust and refine your business plan and application
You will be guided by a leading Funding Strategist, Dagmar Breiling who is passionate about helping entrepreneurs. She holds a Master’s Degree in Economics from the University of Kiel, Germany. For the past 7 years, she has lived and worked In South Africa assisting numerous companies to access grants and funding from local and international organizations and government departments. She will use her in-depth knowledge and expertise to guide you through the challenges and obstacles,
