Date: 10 April 2019 | Author: Business Leadership South Africa Category: News

NEDBANK is a founding member of the BLSA Connect, an online platform that is designed to link big businesses and black Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs). BLSA Connect is an initiative by Business Leadership South Africa in response to address the socio-economic challenges facing our country.

In order to achieve an Inclusive Socio-economic Growth and Transformation, the BLSA Connect seeks to link big business with black SMMEs and open up the market for more participants in the economy.

Nedbank COO, Mfundo Nkuhlu says big corporates must get involved in this initiative because SMMEs are the biggest drivers of employment and their survival and expansion will boost the country’s economy.
