It's being dubbed a 'one-stop-shop' for entrepreneurs and startups looking for opportunities in the Mother City.

A 'one-stop-shop' business hub will be launched in Cape Town next week (30 July) to provide support and assistance to entrepreneurs and startups.

It's the brainchild of the City of Cape Town's Enterprise and Investment Department.

The aim is to provide a customer-centered interface, through a single point of access to direct businesses to the appropriate support.

Alderman James Vos, Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Assets Management - City of Cape Town

It's all about connecting and enabling startups and businesses with the right officials in one space.
