Hello, Thank you very much for visiting the Branson Centre South Africa site.
We started the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship in South Africa in 2005 to address a critical need for entrepreneurs, at a time when there were few organisations offering free, practical business training and mentoring to start-up businesses. Over the last twelve years, it has proudly supported over 4,300 entrepreneurs to launch and grow thriving businesses, which are making a real impact to the future of South Africa.
Since we launched the Centre, the support available to entrepreneurs has changed dramatically, with several hundred organisations now offering similar services to start-up businesses in South Africa. With this growth in support, we have taken the opportunity to review our position and made the decision to close the physical Branson Centre in Johannesburg.
We are hugely proud of what the Branson Centre South Africa has achieved thanks to the support of our wonderful community, and are committed to continuing our support of entrepreneurs in sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to reviewing new opportunities, we are also continuing our partner programmes in Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia, all with the aim of changing lives for good.
