What is the Enterprise Development Programme
Through the Innovator Trust Enterprise Development programme, SMME’s are developed through training, skills sharing and infrastructure support.
We assist in the acceleration of business through identifying opportunities of importance and offering a custom gap analysis where we can work with the SMME to maximise on potential growth areas.
We cultivate through our incubator partner programmes –where we are able to equip the small business owner with the correct tools and skills needed to work towards success.
In addition to the above, our SMME’s are allocated business mentors to offer guidance and help facilitate the creation of networks.
