The programme was divided into three phases consisting of phase one which covered skills development and training; phase two which focused on sectors and market analysis; and, now, phase three which involves mentorship and industry exposure.
This final phase is the cornerstone of the programme and will have the participating SMMEs partnered with mentors, with a maximum of six mentees per mentor.
