iHub Enterprise Supplier Day

May 26, 2023

The iHub continues to be a beacon of entrepreneur empowerment. The Gqeberha branch of the iHub alongside financial institution Absa recently held a supplier day where entrepreneurs were being guided through the crucial aspect of connecting with suppliers that would be beneficial towards their different ventures and the entrepreneur development programme offered by Absa.

The event was also the beginning of a relationship between the iHub and ABSA who were also a named participant of the event. The speakers at the event included our esteemed CEO Darryl Dennis who gave presentations alongside Geevendree Buck, Area Segment Manager for SME Business Bank Absa.

The event - organised by Olem Business Boutique, was attended by many young entrepreneurs who have a variety of technology based establishments. They walked away with the knowledge that was provided by the representative from ABSA who is part of the enterprise development and alternative lending solutions department.

The provision of such services by iHub is crucial because as we aim to attract more incubates to our family we do not ever want to stray away from one of our main goals which is enterprise development. The session definitely helped us take one step further towards achieving this.
