Entrepreneurship

SUPPORTING THE DREAMS OF LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS

The spirit of entrepreneurship has been at the heart of SAB from our beginnings

At SAB, our dream is to support the creation and retention of sustainable jobs and drive economic inclusion that will enable thousands of entrepreneurs to access opportunities. We believe in our entrepreneurs, we believe in their dreams, in their drive to succeed and the difference they make in our communities. Through our entrepreneurship programmes, we want to support entrepreneurs on their journey and show our commitment to providing a tangible and sustainable future for all South Africans.

Farming

Committed to Driving local Sourcing

Striving to drive local sourcing strategy and to be the leading emerging farmer program in South Africa

As an organisation that is deeply rooted in the South African Agriculture industry, it is important for us to find sustainable ways in which we can future proof and attract young black farmers to agriculture. And what better way to entice participation than to bring technology and digital solutions to existing farming practices?

Recognising the significant contribution of agriculture to our economic growth, SAB is investing in educating and upskilling our farmers and tertiary students, in order to enhance the country’s agricultural skills pipeline.

Retailers

Commited to township revitalisation

Deeply committed transformation of townships through the empowerment of women owned retailer

Small scale retailers are the largest providers of jobs in townships. Often self taught, those entrepreneurs lack the know-how and the infrastructure capital to take their businesses to the next level. By investing in the development of women owned retailers, we directly impact the local economy enabling the creation of new jobs and resilience of those businesses
