Now in its sixth year of collaboration, the MTN SA Foundation and the Datacomb Development Hub (DDH) project is part of MTN’s Accelerated Business Development Programme which has, to date, helped nurture and grow over 100 SMEs. The project is currently looking for this year’s 20 SMEs which will benefit from this programme. The DDH provides tools to the selected ICT SMEs through a twelve-month business development programme. The training helps these entrepreneurs access markets, technology and specialist skills, that will help grow their businesses. The programme also provides custom designed solutions for local enterprise development, growth strategy development and additional business development services to give these SMEs the edge they need over their competitors. MTN believes corporate South Africa has a responsibility to create an ecosystem that supports the development and growth of small and medium-sized businesses. Over the years, it has seen that when talented and motivated entrepreneurs are enabled with access to the right platforms, stimulus and networks, they can succeed.
