Cape Town – Start-up entrepreneurs could win one of three places at Seed Academy’s entrepreneur training programme valued at R48 000 if they complete their survey.

The survey aims to get a national picture of start-up entrepreneurs, what challenges they face, what issues relate to funding, what sort of additional support is needed to increase success rates.

“Whilst more funding and opportunities are available for start-ups, we need to benchmark where we are and which areas need improvement,” said Jeff Miller, non-executive chairman of Seed Academy.
“We hope to get up to 1 000 responses and we will share our findings,” he said. “This national survey will develop impetus for industry and government to align efforts to create a more sustainable and successful start-up culture in South Africa.

"It’s essential that we succeed to create an economically successful country and to reduce our high unemployment rate.”
The survey, which targets start-up entrepreneurs who have been in business for less than five years, should take about five minutes to complete.
The results will be revealed at Seed Engine’s SA Entrepreneur Funding Summit 2015.

Time complete the survey.
