Venture Capital Within Reach

Venture Capital Within Reach


Grow your venture from an untested idea to a business worth investing in with the HUB Johannesburg’s new business clinic, Become Investor Ready.

The HUB Johannesburg is holding a free information session from 7pm to 8pm on Tuesday 26 February. Attendees will be able to gauge if the practical course will benefit their businesses before choosing to join the programme.

Growing wealth in your business

The investor ready programme is a 10-week crash course in creating the foundation for a sustainable and valuable enterprise. The purpose of the programme is to equip entrepreneurs and social innovators with the practical knowledge to match their passion and vision.

The workshops will be led by Paul Smith, lecturer, author and researcher who is currently

pursuing his PhD in entrepreneurship. Through the practical course, participants take lessons learnt, from both successful and unsuccessful ventures, and apply them to their own businesses. Each workshop will push participants to question the assumptions underpinning their organisation as they uncover their ventures’ true value proposition.

“At the HUB, we believe that start-ups and small businesses are one of the key drivers of innovation and change in society,” says the HUB Johannesburg’s Greg Musiker. “Our goal is to support dynamic individuals who are part of a new generation of practical changemakers.”

Full details

The course will run from 5 March to 7 May 2013. Sessions are held after hours to not interfere with the daily running of your business. The course costs R3 000.
