You're invited to the ANDE SA webinar with members Catalyst for Growth (C4G) on the Business Development Support impact on small business in South Africa. C4G will present on emerging insights from their latest Update Report.

C4G’s mandate is to increase understanding and transparency within the Business Development Services (BDS) and SMME sectors by gathering and analysing data on the effect of BDS on SMMEs across a variety of indicators. C4G is a JP Morgan initiative co-funded by USAID.

This report is part of the initial and on-going journey aimed at achieving a better understanding of the South African BDS sector and the vital role it plays in the development of SMMEs. In an effort to grow the understanding of SMME development, C4G assessed four learning questions which came from its stakeholder engagement sessions with corporates, BDS providers and SMME investors, namely:

  • What type of SMMEs/characteristics of entrepreneurs, benefit the most from BDS?
  • What type of BDS programmes perform best?
  • What is the national economic benefit of supporting SMMEs?
  • What type of BDS is most efficient (value for money) in creating jobs and revenue?

These analyses produced six initial insights. Join the webinar to learn more, as well as receive a demo of C4G’s new platform.
