Are you keen to sell products & services to the township economy ?

Join as at the Township Economies Conference & Expo and meet township businesses looking for products and solutions to grow their small enterprise.

How big is the township economy?

An estimated 17% of South Africa’s total employment is through the informal economy or so called “township economy.” In a country with an unemployment rate over 35%, the informal sector is a lifeline to countless families who lack formal employment.

We invite key stakeholders and the private sector to exhibit and to sponsor the Township Economies Conference & Expo to engage with township businesses:

  • City Metros keen to develop their township economies
  • Technology service providers, i.e. cellular technology, payment gateways, etc.
  • Financial institutions aimed at supporting and providing financial services to the information market sector in townships
  • Legal Firms keen to support small business with access to legal services
  • Skills development and training institutions
  • SMMEs keen to grow their profile in the market and access new markets

The aim of the event will be to serve as a catalyst for enterprise development aiding the growth and development of Township Economies to deliver more jobs, business growth and economic activity.
