Branson Invites Treps to ‘Open for Business’


The Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship will be launching Johannesburg’s first ‘Open for Business’ community festival in September.

Marketing opportunities

Entrepreneurs from the community are invited to come and market their goods and services to neighbours and potentially meet new clients in a fun and festive environment.

The festival provides a platform for community entrepreneurs to market their goods or services to their neighbours and network in a family-friendly environment.

Three ‘Open for Business’ events are planned for Jo’burg. The first kicks off at the Katlehong Art Centre on 8 September 2012 at 10:00.

Helping treps grow

One participating small business owner will be chosen to join the Branson Centre and receive training, one-on-one mentoring and business tools to help them grow – at no cost to them.

Where to book

Visit the Branson Centre website for more details on how to book a stand. The cost is R100 per business.
