The Junior Chamber International World Congress South Africa has launched a new youth entrepreneurship program in Sandton, the JCI Sandton BIZHUB Program. The program aims to create a community of sustainable Small Medium Enterprises addressing prevalent economic issues in society such as unemployment. The JCI Sandton BIZHUB Program is one of the many initiatives undertaken by the Junior Chamber International World Congress South Africa to curb the high youth unemployment figures in South Africa.
COVID-19 has seen the unemployment rate skyrocket and communities sinking in poverty. The JCI Sandton BIZHUB Program encourages the youth to start their enterprises and equip them with tools to remain open so that they contribute towards the economic development of the country and their communities. While the program is youth-centric, older citizens are also encouraged to participate. The aim is to ensure that every business that exists is sustainable enough to create employment and economic growth in the country.
The JCI Sandton BIZHUB Program’s key areas of focus for the program includes Exclusive Business Development Training, Entrepreneurship 101 Webinars (Winning Formulae – StartUp), Inter Business Networking and Advertising amongst the SMEs, Offer Compliance services (Registrations, BEE certificates, TCC, CSD Registrations, and Industry Registrations) and Experts Tips & Quotes.
The JCI Sandton BIZHUB Program is also one of the programs building up to the 2021 Junior Chamber International World Congress taking place from the 16th to the 20th of November 2021. 2021 Junior Chamber International World Congress will be a hybrid event attended by about 500 delegates onsite at the Sandton Convention Centre and a targeted 20,000 delegates virtually from more than 100 countries.
