Their businesses should at least be 51% black-owned, have operated for no less than two consecutive years and offer services in the property industry. They must have a track record of projects completed and be able to provide a minimum of five references.

Theunissen encourages businesses who do not qualify for this intake to put goals in place to meet the requirements to be considered for future intakes.

“Property Point’s monthly To The Point sessions are open to all entrepreneurs and are another way we support small business, and we encourage business people who are interested in our enterprise and supplier development programmes to attend them,” says Theunissen.
