A Tour from Ikhaya Le Langa Quarter to Kraaifontein

In a move to foster small business development and job creation in the Western Cape, The City of Cape Town and MEDO (the Micro Enterprise Development Organisation) have announced a nine day tour across the city in search of exceptional individuals who intensely aspire to take their small businesses to the next level. The tour starts in the Ikhaya Le Langa Quarter on 15 August and ends in Kraaifontein on 24 August.  The organisers invite entrepreneurs to visit the mobile office – or Treppie – to pitch their businesses.  Successful applicants will receive a boost to their enterprise in the form of access to further training programmes.
“We are taking the tour to areas that need the entrepreneurial support, areas where we could make the greatest impact on the communities we visit”, says Councillor Garreth Bloor, Mayoral Committee Member for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning. “Heading to eight different locations, we as a City will expose entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs to the possibilities of starting their own business by helping them to identify opportunities, giving them necessary skills and leaving them with information about support offered by various Enterprise Development Organisations with which to succeed”.
“By assisting like-minded entities such as The City of Cape Town, MEDO is able to implement  programmes such as this that take grassroots entrepreneurs with small enterprises and mould them into sustainable businesses able to create long-term employment in their communities. We look forward to meeting  many entrepreneurs on this trip and being able to offer the cream of the crop the opportunity to truly advance both their businesses and lives” adds MEDO CEO Judi Sandrock.
