Ignite your business in a changing world, with Nedbank Business Ignite

29 June 2020 10:59 AM

Training programmes, on-air advertising and cash are all up for grabs in this year's Nedbank Business Ignite.

CapeTalk has been focused on how small and medium businesses have managed to survive the enormous difficulties of the Covid-19 lockdown.

It has forced businesses to relook the way they do things and find new ways to survive and even thrive.

To help your business navigate these stormy waters, Nedbank Business Ignite with CapeTalk is back! Business growth expert Matsi Modise, founder of Furaha Afrika Holding, chats to Refilwe Moloto and says she is excited to launch Nedbank Business Ignite with CapeTalk once again.

This year we want to celebrate businesses that have not just survived but are thriving. People are looking for that ray of hope that this is not just the end but rather a time of endless opportunity.

Matsi Modise, Founder - Fuhara Afrika Holding

The competition is looking for small and medium businesses that are turning over between R2 million and R5 million a year, business owners that are resilient.

She says the competition is not sector-specific.

We are looking for businesses that have shown an interest in being innovative and are keen to digitise, because coronavirus brought an opportunity for you to pivot... It's no longer business as usual.

Matsi Modise, Founder - Fuhara Afrika Holding

Pivoting has become the new business buzz word.

So we're going to teach you how to pivot, how to be agile, how to be lean, how to leverage technology and how to digitise, and how to skill your business.
