How it all started..
SME YOU was founded in 2016 as a project to connect, grow and empower South African businesses and entrepreneurs. We, as entrepreneurs face mountains of challenges that come in all shapes and sizes. We recognised that one of the problems new businesses and entrepreneurs face is getting their business in front of the right people, may it be customers, investors etc. Another problem we recognised was new businesses not being able to find the resources or suppliers they required. We at SME YOU aim to address these challenges and help Businesses and entrepreneurs connect, grow and prosper.
The goals & visions
Our main goal is to promote South African businesses & entrepreneurs as much as we possibly can. The platform will allow Businesses to showcase their products/services on our website and allow us to promote them through various avenues – Leading customers or other businesses to their products/services. It is completely free to list your business – you can do so by simply filling out the form on the website which should take no longer than 2 minutes. From there your business will be added to our website and we will promote it through the website, social channels, email newsletters and various other avenues. Once your business is listed on our website and you’ve signed up for our newsletter, we will invite you to expos, showcases and networking events as well.
