The Small Business Promotion Pioneer Award Goes to BEFE
The Small Business Promotion Pioneer Awards ceremony was hosted in Cape Town at the end of May marked the 20th anniversary of the watershed policy on small business. The 20th Anniversary Awards recognised those that had made a significant contribution to small business promotion in the country before and after 1995.
Out of the 19 awards presented only two categories recognised small business development through exhibitions. The Business Entrepreneurship & Franchise Expo (BEFE), presented in partnership with Eskom was recognised for its significant contribution to development in the exhibitions categories
The Business Entrepreneurship & Franchise Expo annually presents a wide range of business opportunities, financial and entrepreneurial advice for every level of business. It is seen as South Africa’s one-stop annual business boot camp. The organisers try to ensure that that exhibitors offer business opportunities with ever-lower barriers to entry. They annually strive to increase the range of educational workshops and information sessions available to small businesses, and the number of financial and business experts available on the show floor to advise potential entrepreneurs and small businesses
Small business advancement is seen as a top priority and therefore they take great pride in the Small Business Promotion Pioneer award.
Take note of the upcoming Business Entrepreneurship & Franchise Expo from 10-13 September at the TicketPro Dome (formerly Coca-Cola dome) in Northriding, Johannesburg. This year’s expo will feature a wide variety of business and franchise opportunities, financial and business advice, as well as workshop areas.
The Eskom Foundation focuses on developing South African business through programmes such as the Simama Ranta high school entrepreneurship education development programme and the Business Investment Competition for entrepreneurs, both of which will be showcased at BEFE.
