Brand SA, the country’s marketing agency, celebrates 10 years in driving active citizenship in SA with the launch of the Business Edition, which aims to support small and medium businesses (SMEs) during this tough economic time.

It continues to partner with private sector and entities that support SMEs to help in the much-needed economic recovery. 

For SA SMEs, which already have to contend with a contracting economy, Covid-19 is putting further pressure on their operations. Lockdown measures have caused revenues in many SMEs to fall precipitously, and the majority report that they are being forced to cut back on business spending to survive. 

Real, sustainable opportunities for small businesses are urgently needed as they are the bloodline of any economy. Brand SA partnered with the Business Exchange early in the year in a series of workshops aimed at helping small businesses. It also worked with FedEx, which provided grants for promising SMEs with the support of one of its foundations.

As part of the 10-year celebration of the Play Your Part programme launched to create social positive change in the country, Brand SA is launching the #BusinessEdition, focused on empowering small businesses and getting South Africans back to work. 

Brand SA will collaborate with a number of corporates to support SMEs in SA with a wide range of offerings such as training sessions, business workshops, business seminars and webinars, and grants.
