SAB is committed to supporting the dreams of South African entrepreneurs,
and we have seen the power of one idea.
The spirit of entrepreneurship has been at the heart of SAB from our beginnings. The creation of SAB KickStart, SAB Foundation, SAB Accelerator and SAB Thrive shows our commitment to providing a tangible and sustainable future for South Africans. Our programmes continue to provide invaluable coaching and financial support to the businesses we partner with to drive economic growth and add to job creation.
At SAB, our dream is to support the creation of 10 000 sustainable jobs and drive a more inclusive economy that will enable thousands of entrepreneurs to access opportunities. We believe in our entrepreneurs, we believe in their dreams, in their drive to succeed and the difference they make in our communities. Through our entrepreneurship programmes we want to back you and your ideas 100%.
