As Bantsho, apply our energies, but are not limited to, the following areas:

Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME) and Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) development:

As creators of wealth, employment and innovation, SMMEs need support. We provide support for SMMEs by identifying opportunities, partnerships, incentives and grants from government and private sectors to enable their growth into the mainstream of the economy. Whilst our approach to SMME development is holistic, we have a slanted approach for the development of Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) ventures, because BEE entities have historically faced decades of economic exclusion and disempowerment

Executive Advisory Services on Small Business Development

We provide advice and implementation strategies for business and government executives on constructive engagement with small businesses, communities and youth. We advise individual executives, small and large teams of decision-makers on aligning small business development with their corporate strategies. We also identify business deals that are viable for black business participation and identify industry players that will support Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) ventures

Local Government and Local Economic Development

We work with local government to create an enabling environment for SMMEs to create employment opportunities for local people and create an entrepreneurial environment for SMMEs to flourish, thereby creating social and political stability

Local Government and Youth Development

We facilitate economic transformation workshops and develop policies and strategies in areas plagued by service delivery protest. We engage all stakeholders, especially youth and youth formations in the areas. We are conscious of the challenges faced by youth, especially their economic marginalisation.

Through engagement with municpality executive mamangement teams, we ensure that the policies and strategies developed are integrated into the Local Economic Development (LED) policy as well as the Integrated Development Plan (IDP).

Unlocking the collective positive energy of youth is central in creating social and political stability, which ultimately contibutes to the stimulation of local economies.

Youth, Women and People with Disabilities Development

Youth, women and people with disabilities constitute the highest number of unemployed and the most excluded in the economy. We assist all levels of government in ensuring that the planning, the engagement, the implementation and the monitoring and evaluation include the disadvantaged communities

Enterprise and Innovation Development

We believe in encouraging communities in identifying their own challenges and solutions. Through our partnership with the University of Johannesburg (UJ), we develop the capacity of small businesses and communities through entrepreneurial and innovative skills development, thereby creating community-owned businesses

Marketing and Business Linkages

The partnership between established large businesses and SMMEs are critical in ensuring job creation and economic growth. We have techniques and approaches aimed at encouraging mutually beneficial relations between SMMEs and large corporates.

Research and Development

Research and development enables informed decision-making. Our internal capacity and partnerships with credible research institutions enable us to conduct any type and size of research for our clients

Training and development

We develop customised training solutions for our clients in their areas of specialisation. We believe in developing problem- specific solutions and refrain from the ‘one-size-fits-all’ mentality to training and development. We understand, that transformation and keeping your company in the forefront of modern trends and marketing techniques, is not only time-consuming, but also requires skills and up-to-date trend observations.

Here at Bantsho we are comfortable with transformation and business development and we know what to do to get your company providing better service and transforming to a global status. Let us guide you on a journey destined to your company’s future success!
