Are you a startup founder looking for that big break? South African startups have an exciting opportunity to be exposed on national radio and to be coached by well-known talkshow host and entrepreneur, Pavlo Phitidis.
SA radio stations 702 and Cape Talk have partnered with Nedbank for the sixth Business Accelerator programme. Ventureburn has also teamed up with the accelerator to promote the event and foster relationships in the startup ecosystem.
The aim of the Business Accelerator programme is to talk about businesses on air and make listeners aware of them, as well as help accelerate their growth in 2017.
The programme is looking for companies that make a difference to consumers, operate in SA, and have an annual turnover of less than R150-million.
Phitidis has over 20 years of experience in building businesses in SA and works with business owners through Aurik Business Accelerator, which has to date seen business assets in excess of R1-billion being brought to market.
“As a business owner, to have the benefit of being featured across over one million talk radio listeners is huge. You can get your business out there, reach customers en masse and gain a boost in 2017 that would otherwise cost you a significant investment. Any private business with an annual turnover (of) less than R150 million qualifies and should apply,” says Phitidis.
702 and Cape Talk’s listeners include CEOs, CFOs, CMOs, CPOs, government departments and municipalities, as well as influential consumers.
To apply for the programme, companies are required to be part of a CC or Pty, have been trading for more than three years, and changing the lives of consumers.
