Young and upcoming businesspersons who attended the workshop


Brisget Rachauene Foundation (BRF) held an entrepreneurship seminar at Falala community hall in Soshanguve Block F, for young people with business interests, who would like to know or expand their knowledge in businesses.

The Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC), National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) and First National Bank (FNB), were invited for presentation and take part in the seminar.

Ms Bridget Rachauene the founder of a Non-Profit Organization (NPO) BRF, explained to Soshanguve Times the role that BRF plays in helping youth to learn more about business and owning one, and she also expressed how she feels about the session.

“BRF is just a middle man of helping the people to get the relevant information about how to start or run a business, that is why we invited FNB, NYDA and CIPC to come share information and business advices with young and upcoming business owners,” Said Ms Rachaune.

“I am happy about the support and also the attendance of the youth, the seminar was a success it was what I was anticipating,” she said.

Technical support specialist from the NYDA, Tshepiso Sibanda, said that the purpose of this seminar is to share the product and services of NYDA which include how young black South Africans can start-up businesses and how they can access funds from NYDA.

“We are planning to educate young people on how to run successful businesses and also make young people to be aware of the services offered within the NYDA.

“Because NYDA is a government agency, they can be able to access these funding, and people should know that they can access NYDA product and services all across South Africa or calls us on our 24 hours call centre,” said Ms Sibanda.

Mr Phenyo Lovoma, a young and upcoming businessperson who runs the Life Cool Clothing, said the presentation was fruitful to him and now everything is clear for him now.

“I benefitted a lot from the seminar, I now understand what to do from my current standpoint, and I know where to go.

“I met the right people to approach in order to expand my business and now I know what to do to grow my business,” Said Mr Lovoma.
