2023 SMME Programme applications
The future growth of the South African economy largely rests on the shoulders of entrepreneurs. Through our Enterprise and Supplier Development programme, we aim to assist black-owned and black women-owned SMMEs to grow and become financially and operationally independent. By creating and/or developing sustainability for these small businesses, we also create a strong structure for access into the economy and thereby, ultimately, assisting to reduce the high unemployment rate in the country.
In order to apply for the programme, your business must meet all the following requirements:
It must be an EME/ QSE with at least 51% black-ownership (as per the Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Act of 2003)
It must have a valid B-BBEE certificate/EME and or QSE sworn affidavit
It must have been operating for at least one year
It must be able to provide us with references and prior contracts of work
It must prove that it has the potential to grow and become a success with the required ESD support
If you meet all of these requirements, please complete the application form below and we wish you every success with your application.
