Auto and General SME Funding Seminar

Auto and General SME Funding Seminar


This funding seminar welcomed an array of a entrepreneurs that walked in with a vigilant thirst to equip each of their business with the in depth knowledge of funding opportunities in South Africa. The seminar knocked with an insightful presentation by head of business unit – Petra Rees who highlighted on the following points:

  • Sources of funding via government funds, funding houses, venture capitalist etc.

  • Hoops to accessing funding

  • Checklist for funding

  • Contingencies and litigation relative to funding

We were equally intrigued with a funding presentation conducted by Joseph Chigwedere from Humark Management Consulting, a network facilitator for the dti grant scheme, the Black Business Supplier Development Programme (BBSDP).

The afternoon came to end with a powerful presentation by Femi Adebanji’s Business Motivational Speaker. Femi’s talk was geared towards empowering businesses to deliver champion results through creating and sustaining high-performance cultures and leadership; as well as equipping them to successfully manage change and establish a culture of intelligent innovation.

Overall the seminar was a success and all Auto and General entrepreneurs completed a survey response rating the seminar a 5 star seminar, leaving them looking forward to the upcoming events.
