The Business Entrepreneurship and Franchise Expo runs for four days during September at the TicketPro dome in Northriding, Johannesburg.
The four-day expo provides SMEs, businesses and franchisors with a versatile marketing platform from which to build brand awareness, interact with potential customers and investors as well as to generate media coverage.
The Expo also serves as a platform that links entrepreneurs, suppliers, customers, investors and funders and allows them to explore a variety of investment prospects and franchise options.
Every year Eskom Business Investment Competition finalists are given the opportunity to exhibit at the Expo, as part of their prize, giving these small businesses a unique opportunity to showcase their enterprises, network with other businesses and make contact with potential customers.
The Eskom Development Foundation, which co-ordinates and executes Eskom's corporate social investment programme, supports entrepreneurial businesses through its enterprise development programme of which the Business Entrepreneurship & Franchise Expo is a flagship event.
