Entries Now Open For The Vut/Sasol Entrepreneurship Programme

People often debate on whether entrepreneurs are born or made, but one thing can be disputed about that debate is that, polishing certain skills can help you become a good, confident entrepreneur.

The Vaal University of Technology’s Sasol Entrepreneurship Programme initiative was initiated by Sasol and VUT three years ago with the aim of helping youth from the disadvantaged backgrounds, equipping them with practical skills and knowledge on entrepreneurship and job creators instead of job seekers.

For learners who have a passion to develop their own business and have the drive for entrepreneurship. This opportunity could offer them a once-in-a-lifetime chance to upgrade, upskill and put their new found knowledge to generate profit. This highly sought after programme is for aspiring entrepreneurs between the ages of 18-30, who only have a Grade 12 certificate and wish to start up their business. The programme will give the learners a clear indication on how to develop a winning business plan with specific aims and goals that are outcome based for successfully launching of their particular enterprise. There are limited space available and it is incumbent on the applicant to act promptly and register for this exciting development programme. The duration of the full-time programme is eight months and is scheduled to commence on 4 March and end in November 2017.

This entrepreneur development programme is free and is fully funded by the Vaal University of Technology and Sasol. At the end of the programme, learners will have the necessary knowledge and relevant skills on how to start a business, draft a winning business plan and obtain funding.

The selection process will include interviews after which the successful candidates will be chosen. Once accepted for the programme, a registration fee of R150 will apply to continue the programme.
