GROUNDSWELL ~ supporting enviropreneurs
Are you an entrepreneur committed to solving environmental challenges? Can your proven product or potential service unlock possibilities in water sustainability? Fetola is launching GROUNDSWELL, a new initiative to accelerate the success of products and services in the water, sustainability and resource efficiency sectors. This practical programme, supported by seed funding from J.P. Morgan, builds entrepreneurial skills and helps big corporates and small business owners do better business together. Thirty South African entrepreneurs will benefit from an intensive 18-month growth programme of practical business skills training, mentorship, supply chain inclusion, investment readiness preparation, and access to markets. Enviropreneurs, waterpreneurs and greentrepreneurs are invited to apply. Established enterprises with growth potential and start-ups that have already invested in their initial concept are welcome. GROUNDSWELL encourages collaboration between entrepreneurs and citizens, technical advisors and Government stakeholders, and corporates needing recognised suppliers of sustainable solutions. Our mission is to support SMEs providing services with an environmental imperative. If you're a small business owner who is keen to scale a water-related business, please email email@example.com or call 086 111 1690 toll free. Applications will be accepted from 14 February until 9 March.
