– Mark Loreggian, MD, Micro Motor Engineering
Using our Model we have successfully implemented Enterprise Development Projects since 2002 in all provinces of South Africa.
We believe that Enterprise Development is only successful if it leads to a sustainable business that can offer job creation, income generation and community development.
From supplier development, to helping communities to feed, educate and sustain themselves, this on-the-ground team teaches communities to manage themselves and remains committed to making development happen.
Market development, commercial business services and social enterprise are part and parcel of Enterprise Development. In addition, it encompasses finance, entrepreneurship development, investment, that ranges from enabling the start-up of small businesses to providing business skills development through training, mentoring, coaching.
Our Enterprise Development model focuses in developing and delivering a clear, integrated development strategy for the small business sector with the direct benefit of growing and developing the economy and maximizing job creation opportunities and sustainable economic growth.
Enterprise Development is a critical component of Government’s strategy for Transformation. The power to influence lives through economic stability and growth has never been more important and to achieve the long-term goals of our Government, it is vital that there is a policy and strategy that is viable, that is relevant and most importantly, that achieves its goals.
Siyakha Consulting’s SMME Development Programme identifies Small Black Owned Businesses which need assistance with developing and growing their business.
An initial needs analysis interview is conducted with each entrepreneur to understand their business, their market and their needs. From this a fully comprehensive Development and Implementation plan is put in place. The entrepreneurs enter a 12 month incubation programme where they are given the assistance, training and development, guidance, mentoring and ongoing support required.
COMMUNITY & RURAL DEVELOPMENT
Siyakha Consulting are currently engaged in over 20 Rural Development Enterprise Development projects throughout South Africa and are working in Gauteng, Limpopo, North West, Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Free State. Our work is creating sustainable communities and empowering poorer South African families.
Our Rural Development model ensures that a rural community has the right and ability to sustain itself. We work with all stakeholders in that community in order to provide development programmes that address the needs of the community in an effective and sustainable way.
The Siyakha Consulting process is centred around sustainability. Through feasibility studies and subsequent implementation plans, the Siyakha team work in partnership with the communities to ensure that communities have the requisite knowledge, infrastructure and skills to self-manage the accessibility to ICT within their individual communities. This is an empowering function focused on success.
