Forging Enterprise 2015
In 1995, former President Nelson Mandela hosted his first President’s Conference on Small Business. In 2015, Forging Enterprise will mark 20 years of small business promotion in South Africa by hosting a celebratory event in Cape Town from 26 to 28 May.
The programme will include:
- A small business indaba
- A small business assembly
- The 11th annual meeting and forum of the International Network for SMEs (INSME)
- An award recognising those that have made a significant contribution to small business development over the past 20 years.
Forging Enterprise 2015 is being produced and managed by Osiba Management in collaboration with various partners. BSSA is assisting Osiba by serving on the awards adjudication panel.
The event enjoys the support of several Cape Town-based SMME support agencies, particularly those in the innovation and technology field.
