Women Owned Business Access to Finance Guide Pre-Launch

We are launching a user-friendly guide dedicated to providing women-owned businesses with all they need to know to be successful when engaging with funders and investors. In order to effectively overcome systematic and socioeconomic issues that make it challenging for women to access funding and investment, dialogue and understanding between women-owned businesses and funders is imperative. The pre-launch of the Women-Owned Business Access to Finance Guide will serve as an opportunity for this dialogue to take place and for us to co-create a guide that will meet the true needs of women-owned businesses looking for funding. At the pre-launch of the Women-Owned Businesses Access to Finance Guide we will host the financial institutions and finance experts who have contributed to the guide and provide an opportunity for you to engage directly with them about various challenges you are currently facing. You should attend... If you have applied for finance and been unsuccessful or partially successful If you have questions about accessing funding If you don’t know what questions to ask but know that you want to access funding to grow If you have been building your business with your own money and feel like it's time for the next level If you are struggling to navigate this area in general and want to empower yourself with knowledge Exclusive opportunity for attendees We will be selecting a handful of businesses to bring on board for one-on-one business development support provided by award-winning enterprise and supplier development organization, Property Point Venture Catalyst.

Protection of Personal Information Act for smme’s

It’s been a few weeks since POPIA came into effect, have you got a grasp on how to implement it? The Protection of Personal Information Act, came into effect on the 1st of July 2021 to increase the safety of our personal information as South Africans, both online and offline. While the intention behind this regulation may be good, the implementation has got many of us scratching our heads and confused by all the information and advice going around. For you as small business owners particularly, POPIA is an addition to the many hats you have to wear on a daily basis already. This session is aimed at providing a little bit more clarity to some of the do’s and don’ts, truths, and myths of POPIA implementation. We will focus particularly on implementation as it relates to IT and Legal obligations. Join us, Thursday the 26th of August – and be ready to take some notes.

Inform

The #Inform sessions provide entrepreneurs with crucial information that they can use within their businesses. This information is usually aligned with current affairs, opportunities and threats that SMMEs should be aware of, which would have an immediate impact on their businesses. Our strength is in ensuring we timeously get hold of subject-matter experts and decision-makers to provide the highest quality of information. For E.g. The webinars we hosted which unpack the various COVID-19 relief funding packages available for small businesses.

Equip

The #Equip sessions go into further detail and provide masterclasses, and ‘How to’ guidelines on various topics, from strategy and performance management to health and safety. These are topics that will usually have a medium to long -term impact on a business and are likely to affect its overall strategy if implemented. Equipping takes information one step further and seeks to enable action. At the end of each session, tangible information is provided through resources, practical tools and exercises for entrepreneurs to implement within their businesses.

Inspire

The #Inspire sessions are aimed at creating an opportunity for entrepreneurs to hear stories of challenges, success and innovation from fellow entrepreneurs, and also from successful entrepreneurs whose levels of self and business-elevation they aspire to reach. Entrepreneurship can be a lonely journey, and sessions such as our #InConversation series of webinars is a powerful tool to create a sense of community, support and inspiration.
