Welcome to the Centre for Entrepreneurship Rapid Incubator

Welcome to Our website! Gert Sibande Centre for Entrepreneurship was established on the 13th of March 2015, by the Honourable Minister Lindiwe Zulu.

The Centre was developed by the Department of Small Business Development in partnership with University of Johannesburg and GS TVET College.

With the rise of the need of improving the local business environment, increasing commercial occupancy and development the Centre for Entrepreneurship was bestowed with the rights to host a Rapid Incubator in partnership with the Small Enterprise Development Agency (SEDA). In July 2018 the Gert Sibande Centre for Entrepreneurship Rapid Incubator was launched.

The Centre for Entrepreneurship Rapid Incubator was developed to promote and develop young entrepreneurs in the province of Mpumalanga.

The purpose of the Centre is to develop self-sustainable entrepreneurs (start and grow activities) who can make a contribution to the economy of Gert Sibande District and to become fully-fledged and legally complying economically sustainable SMEs. This will contribute to alleviate poverty and address the high youth unemployment rate in the Gert Sibande district.

The Centre for Entrepreneurship and Incubation is strategically poised to effectively address these persistent challenges experienced in the province.
