As the country emerges from the current pandemic, attention has been brought to how small businesses will need to adapt to life after Covid-19 and the harsh realities that may come along with it.

Brand South Africa, the marketing agency for the country, launched Play Your Part Business Edition, a campaign that aims to support small businesses and continue to partner with the private sector and small business supporting entities to help in the much-needed economic recovery. Since its inception in 2021, Play Your Part Business Edition has assisted small businesses through profiling on social platforms and through intimate business training sessions.

Play Your Part Business Edition will now be teaming up with The Startup Tribe to create an online academy. The Play Your Part Small Business Academy will be launching later this month and aims to provide free practical courses for aspiring entrepreneurs who would like to grow their businesses. The online academy hosts a collection of world-class practical business courses that will empower business owners with the tools and skills to achieve their business goals. The courses have been designed to help with a hands-on approach, whether you are a student, a startup, small business, or a working professional.

The Start-Up is an organisation that is currently playing its part by creating courses that are completely focused on knowledge that can be used by small businesses immediately. A good example of one of the courses is the “How to find clients” course, where the majority of the lessons are designed to assist small businesses in generating business leads. The courses are ideal for individuals who have limited access to resources or money, they only need to pay their data costs, which allows for the knowledge to be accessible to just about anyone.

About The Start-Up Tribe

 The Start-Up Tribe’s main mission is to help 12,5 million people start and grow their businesses as well as to promote what the small businesses have to offer the world and make it accessible to all. As of December 2021, The Startup Tribe is currently active in 26 countries globally and supports 258 communities.
