Cape Town - The development programme for young entrepreneurs of the Afrikaanse Handelsinstituut (AHi) has gained considerable traction during the past 18 months.

A number of AHi affiliated business chambers has heeded the call of the AHi to identify aspiring entrepreneurs to be trained and to be coached by experienced business people.

The training of aspiring and emerging entrepreneurs by business chambers has been a great success and 250 young people attended the training programmes so far.

Capital City Business Chamber launched their training programme in Hammanskraal and Eersterust, VanderBijl Park Business Chamber in Sharpville, Oudtshoorn Business Chamber in Bridgton and Bongulethu.

Training programmes were also initiated by the Tsitsikamma, George, Gansbaai and Robertson Business Chambers respectively.

During the recent AHi annual congress, the Potch/Tlokwe Business Chamber presented a similar training programme for young people from Ikageng and Promosa.  

A training programme was also held in collaboration with the Khwa TTu SAN Culture and Education Centre situated near Atlantis on the West Coast.

Twelve people from different areas such as Botswana, Namibia, Kimberley and West Coast attended.

The students from different SAN backgrounds have also been trained previously to become tour guides in these countries.

The course covers aspects such as business plan development, establishing infrastructure, business financing, human resource management, marketing, business profiling, monitoring and evaluation, management and leadership and sustainability.

"The AHi is very proud of the role that business chambers play in coaching and mentoring of young entrepreneurs and urges young people to become involved in the activities of business chamber," said Christo van der Rheede, CEO of the AHi.

"Through initiatives such as these business South Africa actively contributes to achieving the economic goals of the National Development Plan."
