Tourism launches Enterprise Development Business Incubator to grow and sustain SMMEs in Limpopo

Deputy Minister Elizabeth Thabethe will officially launch  Tourism Enterprise Development Business Incubator in Phalaborwa – Limpopo as part of a greater objective to grow and sustain SMMEs in the sector.

The Tourism Enterprise Development Business Incubator is a virtual vehicle used to facilitate the provision of business support interventions to tourism enterprises. SMMEs that participate in the incubator programme undergo a needs analysis that determines the type of mentorship, coaching and cluster training programmes.

The launch will be followed by a business expo to showcase the services and initiatives under the Enterprise Development and Support Programme.

Entrepreneurs will leave the expo capacitated and empowered with skills and information to succeed in the tourism industry.
