Recent Western Cape Business News

Telkom have partnered with the City of Cape Town in hosting a week-long celebration of entrepreneurship; called Telkom Cape Town Entrepreneurship Week, the event will run from 15 to 21 November 2010 and will form part of Cape Town’s long-term strategy to become an entrepreneurial hub in Africa.

The SMME segment is of great interest to Telkom; the partnership with the City of Cape Town and their commitment to the development of entrepreneurship is a significant partnership that is in line with our business strategy going forward,” Senior Managing Executive for Telkom Enterprise Markets, Dr Brian Armstrong said.

“As a leading telecommunications brand and as one of South Africa’s largest companies, Telkom will lend substantial credibility to CTEW and to the development of entrepreneurship in Cape Town,” Executive Director for Economic, Social Development and Tourism for the City of Cape Town, Mansoor Mohamed said. “The partnership will not only provide numerous communication channels but it will also open up possibilities for collaboration and support for the broader programme of the City.”

Government cannot address the problem of unemployment on its own; the business community must make a contribution. We are pleased that we can contribute to building Cape Town’s capacity as a hub for entrepreneurial innovation,” Armstrong said. “Entrepreneurship is not only a driver of innovation, it is also one of the best mechanisms to grow local employment, something which is critical in a country where the unemployment rate exceeds 25%.”

As a group that puts a premium on innovation, Telkom believes nurturing entrepreneurship is vital to supporting growth in South Africa’s economy. Entrepreneurship and innovation are among some of the most important activities in South Africa today,” Armstrong continued.

Highlights of the event include an Entrepreneurial Summit, a Day of the Entrepreneur Event, which will see high-impact entrepreneurs mentor emerging entrepreneurs and an Entrepreneur Competition.
