Small business is big business, according South Africa’s National Small Business Chamber (NSBC). Committed to supporting SMEs across the country, it’s inviting business to showcase and learn about the evolving industry in Port Elizabeth on 13 August at My Business Expo.
Aiming to be the largest of its kind in world, the seventh extravaganza of its kind hopes to see thousands of entrepreneurs, small businesses and industry-related players from all over the Eastern Cape.
My Business Expo also incorporates Business Start-up Expo, Access to Finance Indaba and My Business Seminars.
“There are a host of learning opportunities to be had at the My Business Expo,” says Mike Anderson, founder and CEO of the NSBC, “in particular, the range of seminars offers SMEs invaluable advice on a range of critical business topics, this year with special focus on the two biggest challenges facing SMEs today: Accessing finance and building a customer base.”
Anderson further explains that SMEs can learn aspects that are often overlooked, such as compliance, tax and BEE certificates. “Furthermore, you can learn about the power of social media, which has enormous reach and is an inexpensive tool to use, making it ideal for growing a small business,” he suggests.
