WEST COAST BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTRE ROADSHOW 2005
The road show was held on the 3rd and 4th of March 2005. Our aim was to market the WCBDC, by informing our community of the WCBDC and the services we offer. We visited Saldanha, Langebaan, Hopefield, Veldrif, Laaiplek, Vredenburg, Laingville and Paternoster.
We invited everyone who has a business (small, medium or micro businesses) or business idea to visit the WCBDC. We handed out brochures with information on our youth program, entrepreneurial development program (EDP), SMME subscription program and further more. The outcome of our road show was successful. Clients from rural areas are visiting and receiving advice and support from the WCBDC.
All our staff at the WCBDC supported the road show.
Kgomotso Tikane and Lebo Manhe recently started their own courier service called Shosholoza Couriers.
They are busy negotiating a Joint Venture agreement with an established courier company, who will assist them with infrastructure and skills transfer, while they provide equity to the partnership.
Shosholoza Couriers has applied to make use of office space at the WCBDC and will participate in the SMEDP.
We are looking forward to assisting
them with the growth and development of their business.
