South African businesses now have the opportunity to empower black entrepreneurs this Mandela Day with the skills needed to run sustainable business ventures thanks to power brands joining forces.
This year, iLearn and Over the Rainbow, founders of the Golden Circle mentorship programme, have partnered up to provide 67 SME's with business support in the form of a Hosted Learnership Solution as as add-on to the annual 67 Logo's Designathon event. Entrepreneurs will also receive on-going mentoring as part of the 15-month initiative.
"Our team is extremely excited about this unique opportunity and the shared value that this project will create for black entrepreneurs in South Africa this Mandela Day. Our ultimate goal is to empower the successful entrepreneurs by providing them with the necessary skills to develop sustainable businesses, allowing them to become more economically active." says Richard Rayne, CEO of iLearn.
