Enterprise development involves investing money and time in small enterprises, so that they can become sustainable and grow. It can help people to escape poverty and earn a living, and in the process contribute to economic growth in South Africa.

Corporate social investment consultancy Trialogue has accordingly launched an Enterprise Development topic on its Trialogue Knowledge Hub, which now spans nine topics addressing subjects ranging from financial literacy to school leadership. It brings together local and international research, examples of best-practice projects, news and opinions, and many more tools.

The intention is for corporate foundations and other stakeholders to find out more about this trending topic, learning from other companies’ experiences and unlocking its potential. Enterprise development is also a key component of the revised BBBEE and other sector codes, so more companies are seeking up-to-date information on it.

“The 2013 Impact Amplifier Report identified three main challenges: lack of business knowledge among small entrepreneurs, the gap between objectives and application, and insufficient measurement frameworks to check on the impact of programmes.

“We hope that more companies will access the Knowledge Hub, whether they are considering getting involved in enterprise development, or want to take their current interventions to the next level.”

Rockey says he is delighted that Eskom has agreed to sponsor the Enterprise Development topic, as the power utility has extensive experience in this sector and much to share.
