What we do
|What we do|
The BWB is ideally placed to support both start-up and growth orientated SMMEs in the ICT and Creative sectors through its infrastructure support and business development programmes as it has been active in this field for the past 10 years.
The BWB offers a flexible infrastructure model. This plug & play model reduces the cost of doing business and increases the chances for survival for start-up companies compared to the open market place – for example, the BWB offers short-term lease contracts (as apposed to three or five years in the market); shared PABX and telephone costs; high speed broadband internet connection; shared reception and meeting facilities, etc.
The BWB provides an environment in which its client companies are more likely to be successful. It provides this at a highly affordable price compared to similar offerings.
One of the key weaknesses identified with seed and early stage entrepreneurs is the lack of general business skills. These entrepreneurs are usually strong in their chosen field, be they engineers, developers or other such technology individuals, but have no training or experience in business. The BWB enterprise development programmes are intended to address these skills gaps, and the company has put together a training and mentoring model that combines content sessions, one-on-one mentoring and access to service providers and networking opportunities thereby providing a framework that should enable the participating companies to address current areas of weakness and develop a sustainable base for growth.
This is not just another training course or another workshop. Our programmes are aimed at achieving personal goals and objectives and each intervention is driven by the personal and business needs of the individual entrepreneur or small business owner. Each outcome is designed around a personal, tailor-made development and growth plan.
