Does your organisation provide programmes and services focused on advancing entrepreneurship in the Western Cape?

How easy is it for potential clients to find you?

There are many lists and many directories containing some of the useful contacts in the ecosystem. We lack a truly comprehensive list. We need to know what is out there.

The first step towards stimulating entrepreneurship is mapping and measuring the existing entrepreneurial ecosystem, this includes the policy environment, financial capital and funding available, culture and societal norms, markets, human capital and support available. This analysis allows for diagnosis of potential challenges and opportunities that can be addressed through specific interventions.

The ecosystem map will be generated using this website (www.wcer.co.za) where the various support organisations can continually create and update their own profiles, highlighting the services they offer and contact information.

The Western Cape Entrepreneurial Resource project specifically focusses on the support available to entrepreneurs, this include incubators, accelerators, training providers, finance providers, office space, consulting services, mentorship, shared equipment and many other services and support needed to get projects started and flourishing.

What will you get out of participation?

Inclusion in the website directory is voluntary, with no cost implications. By incorporating the mapping process into a fully searchable user-friendly website, we ensure that support organisations receive an immediate benefit from participation in the project; as well as ensuring that the ecosystem map is up to date and accurate. Entrepreneurial Support Organisations will receive increased exposure and networking opportunities with peers and other organisations within the ecosystem.

Please register your user account and create a profile for your organisation to be considered for inclusion in the directory.

The usefulness of the directory and the exposure you will receive for your organisation will depend on the quality and comprehensiveness of the directory. If you know of any support organisations not listed in the directory, encourage them to join, or alternatively contact us and we will invite them.
