FOCUS Small businesses

FOCUS Small businesses thriving through Empretec programme Seven years of success. The Small Enterprise Development Agency has adopted Empretec, which is a capacity-building programme of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). The programme aims to promote entrepreneurship and to enhance productive capacity and international competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) of developing countries and economies in transition. The Empretec programme is designed to provide training, technical assistance and an institutional base for the formation, expansion and transformation of SMEs. The programme identifies promising entrepreneurs, provides them with training aimed at developing their entrepreneurial skills and understanding basic business procedures, assists them in the preparation of business plans and in obtaining finance for their business ventures, helps to arrange mutually beneficial connections with larger national and foreign companies, and makes available long-term support systems to facilitate the growth and internationalisation of their ventures. Empretec training sessions have been proven to have a positive impact over seven years. Data shows that the survival rate of SMEs of Empretec graduates is almost twice as high as that of non- Empretecos, and that over 80% of participants reported a steady and efficient growth of their business as a result of participation in the programme. Seda Limpopo has hosted 10 Empretec sessions so far and more training sessions will be rolledout. Empretec promotes a methodology of behavioural change that helps entrepreneurs to put their ideas into action and helps fledging businesses to grow. Innovative, experiential and competency-based entrepreneurship training initiatives such as UNCTAD’s Empretec programme are key components of a dynamic and sustainable entrepreneurship ecosystem. As Seda Limpopo continues to roll out the programme in all local municipalities in the province, the programme also benefits from the support of many different strategic partners, including De Beers Venetia Mine and the National Department of Tourism. Other local donors and partners are invited to form part of this opportunity which yields tangible impact on the lives, businesses and communities of entrepreneurs. LIMPOPO BUSINESS 2019/20 78
