Re-launch: SME Business Bang
Welcome to 2012! Business Partners, the choice financier for Small and Medium Enterprises, is re-launching its monthly newsletter to the SME community. We are excited about all the themes we’ll be covering during 2012, all of which should either inspire or empower you in your business environment.
With our well informed articles on various industries, we hope to give you more insight into the role players, trends and influences in each industry. We have also had the privilege of financing many entrepreneurs who, despite challenging economic times, have been able to make a huge success of their business. We will feature their success stories because they are an inspiration to anyone who is or wants to be in business for themselves.
We also value your opinion and would like to hear from you on your experiences in your business, your challenges, opportunities, frustrations and triumphs. Business Partners is at its core a financial institution with a difference. We’re not only about finance and money. What makes us different is our dedication and passion towards transforming and empowering the South African and African small business community.
More than 30 years ago our founding shareholders realised the important role which entrepreneurs, especially those from the SME sector – play in the creation of wealth and jobs. Hence, they established Business Partners Ltd (then the Small Business Development Corporation) as a vehicle to provide risk finance solutions, mentorship and business premises on a sustainable basis. We will continue to find better ways and solutions to promote entrepreneurship as a desirable and successful way to earn a living and contribute to the country’s economy.
Join us on this exciting journey as we, with you – entrepreneurs and role players in the SME sector –work tirelessly towards the success of independent enterprises.
