The promotion of entrepreneurship and small business remains an important priority of the government of South Africa. Our commitment is to ensure that small businesses progressively increase their contribution towards the South African economy in critical areas such as job creation, equity and access to markets.
We know that a strong and well-developed small business sector can contribute significantly to economic growth through the creation of a modern entrepreneurial culture, export markets and innovation. As such, Drakenstein Municipality has recognised the importance of local sustainable municipal interventions and support to ensure an enabling environment for small businesses to grow and thrive to contribute towards the inclusive economic growth of the area.
This SMME Business support webpage serves as a one stop online business portal to enable SMMEs to access reliable information about the entrepreneurial journey.
