Shanduka Black Umbrellas Programme


Organisation: Shanduka Black Umbrellas

If you have a passion, an idea and a business plan, and the perseverance to make it happen, apply to join us as a client today.

Every entrepreneur who has achieved success will have a story to tell of the hard work, commitment, mistakes made and lessons learnt in the process of building their business. Many start-ups don’t make it beyond the first 2 years because of inadequate planning, lack of support, financial or knowledge resources. Here is where Shanduka Black Umbrellas offers an incredible platform through which to develop a business from its start-up phase to full independence. Because the programme addresses the multidimensional components required to develop an emerging business into a sustainable one, entrepreneurs are 100% supported on their business journey, giving them the leverage to success. If you are an entrepreneur with a business enterprise at its start-up phase and the passion to succeed, then join us and derive all the benefits of the Shanduka Black Umbrellas programme – including access to markets, networks and finance.
