The graduation ceremony held on the 14th August 2015 was in honour of the three beneficiaries who completed their ACS Entrepreneurial Programme with Siyakha. The ceremony started at 10:00 am to 13:00 pm.
ACS has strategically invested in Small Business Enterprise Development Programme because we are committed to the growth of this country’s economy. ACS is dedicated to a sustainable transformation agenda that will encourage the promotion of skills and directly address unemployment across many sectors and industries. We believe that in supporting these businesses we will be directly supporting the growth and sustainability of the local economies and in turn the national transformation objectives set by our government.
ACS believes that the type of support and development required for these beneficiaries comes in the form of a unique business-to-business solution, of which Siyakha has been instrumental in determining these needs and tailor making unique development plans for every Entrepreneur to ensure the growth of both hard and soft skills for the sustainability of every beneficiary.
The beneficiaries have attended the Entrepreneurial Workshop. The entrepreneurs participated in a 12 month incubation programme where they are given the assistance in a form of training and development, guidance, mentoring and ongoing support required.
