Did you know that every year, more than R25 billion is available to entrepreneurs in South Africa?

Unfortunately, most applications to funding agencies providing this funding are declined. This is because most people take the incorrect approach to drafting their business plans and do not really understand what the funding institutions are looking for. Organisations like DTI, SEFA and IDC are there to assist entrepreneurs and the South Africa economy, but can’t really do that is the business ventures being applied for are not viable. This is where we, Funding Connection, come in.


We offer interactive workshops that will help you gain a solid understanding of the key elements involved in applying for this funding. In our workshops we cover the following key topics and more:

  • The process of applying for loans and grants.

  • The requirements of programmes.

  • They key criteria of the different agencies.

  • How to adjust and refine your business plan and application.

In these workshops, you will be guided by the Funding Connection team’s experts, ho are passionate about helping South African entrepreneurs grow.
