SAB Foundation Tholoana Enterprise Programme 2017

Deadline: March 15, 2017

The Tholoana Enterprise Programme supports small enterprises that benefit – or are run by – women, the youth and those living in rural and peri-urban areas. Sixty successful candidates will be part of a high-energy solution that has helped hundreds of businesses to accelerate their success. Wrap-around support, including expert mentorship, skills training workshops, access to markets, and qualified investment-readiness support has been shown to improve the confidence and skills of entrepreneurs. If you are an entrepreneur or business owner with a registered business (or in the process of registering) that has been in operation for at least six months and less than five years, you may be eligible for the programme.

  • The business is operational;
  • The business is headquartered and registered (if applicable), within the South African borders;
  • The business should be a going concern, commercially sustainable and viable;
  • You are involved in the business’s daily operations and management on a full time basis, and are not employed by any other organisation;
