MTN Business accelerates SA Entrepreneurs with The Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass

MTN Business is enhancing its support for South Africa’s Entrepreneurs, with the launch of its first annual The Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass.

The first, The Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass, to be staged in Johannesburg on 27 October, will give entrepreneurs in-depth insights into running a digitally smart business.

“The Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass is part of MTN Business’ objective of enabling South Africa’s entrepreneurs to harness technology to compete effectively and grow sustainably,” says David Mphelo, General Manager: Enterprise Sales at MTN Business South Africa. “As a proudly South African company, we have stepped up our initiatives across the board to encourage innovation, build a partner ecosystem that supports local business, and empower entrepreneurs.”

In future, the Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass will be available in other major centres across the country. The aim is to impart knowledge to entrepreneurs about the challenges and opportunities faced in today’s digital economy, and showcase solutions and services available through MTN Business’s partner ecosystem.

Included in the curriculum will be findings of the 2016 National Small Business Survey released by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC), which will be presented by NSBC CEO Mike Anderson. This will assist entrepreneurs to learn about security and communications solutions, and get insights into how to mobilise your businesses and bring them online.

Entrepreneurs will also enjoy an opportunity to view solutions available from MTN Business and technology partners Samsung, Huawei, Hi-Sense, Lenovo, Sony and Blackberry, and networking with industry partners NSBC, IDC and National Gazelles.

“In our ongoing partnerships with entrepreneurs, we have found that it is not enough to offer industry-leading digital solutions and services – we need to provide them with tools that will empower them to successfully compete in the market space,” concludes Mphelo.
