Gear up for growth with the City’s Business Hub<p>​</p><span><p>The programmes are part of a suite of development initiatives from the Business Hub, overseen by the Economic Growth Directorate, to support small enterprises in Cape Town.</p><p> </p><p>'The City recognises that small businesses are foundational to the healthy development of our economy, job creation and innovative concepts that give rise to new industries. I believe that one of the major factors for Cape Town's status as the metro with the lowest unemployment rate is the City's real and continued delivery of upskilling platforms that equips businesses with the necessary insights and abilities for growth,' said Alderman James Vos, the City of Cape Town's Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Growth. <br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>The workshops will cover a range of business development and sustainability topics, such as online marketing, how to do business with the City, costing and pricing, and how to complete a tender document. Many of the sessions will be hosted online, allowing residents to access them wherever they are. </p><p>The Business Hub's team is also available to answer queries regarding red tape, finding financing and more. </p><p>'As a City, we strive to help new and small businesses to navigate the often tricky terrain that comes with growing their platforms and operations. Our mission is to build out the depth and diversity of our economic geography – for those that participate and for those that consume – with a strong focus on building sustainable businesses and entrepreneurs,' said Alderman Vos.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure>​​</span><ul><li>To sign up for workshops, go to <a href="" target="_blank"></a></li><li>For data-free access to the virtual sessions, attendees can use the SmartCape services in public libraries or go to one of the 100 City-run buildings in the metro with free Wi-Fi access.
