Rustenburg – The Girlpreneurs Business Conference, which was held at Rustenburg Golf Club on Thursday 9 September, created the ideal platform for women involved in various business interests to exchange ideas on how to increase their markets.

The conference, which was well attended, was an initiative by Accuracy Group to empower those who attended with a better appreciation of how to successfully run a business. In their opinion, the biggest challenge for women-owned start-ups, is access to networking platforms.

Accuracy Group chairman Tumi Malaatlala outlined the purpose of the day: “The objective is to capacitate women entrepreneurs and help them to register thriving and compliant businesses.”

He also revealed that the conference would be held annually.  Dr. Roche Mamabolo from Lora Academy advised entrepreneurs to persevere during the challenging stages associated with starting one’s own business.

Nqobile Zondi from Standard Bank and Portia Zilwa from Old Mutual’s Masisizane Fund explained about the funding opportunities available for businesses as well as the steps one has to follow to secure funding. 

Participants were also given an opportunity to exhibit their goods and services while others made use of a networking session to establish business contacts and forge partnerships. 

Accuracy Group representatives ensured the business conference was a resounding success.
