About Us

About Us

Property Point is the enterprise development initiative created by Growthpoint Properties, South Africa’s largest JSE-listed property company.   Property Point is dedicated to unlocking opportunities for SMEs operating in South Africa’s property sector.

Established in 2008, Property Point has been a proud catalyst for successful enterprise development. Our carefully developed two-year programme provides entrepreneurs with the skills, training and personal development support they need to develop their enterprises into fully independent companies.

Our Story

Our Story

Property Point understands that SMEs are crucial to the success of South Africa’s economy. We also understand that even the most determined small businesses face steep challenges on the path to growth.

The Property Point team is committed to empowering entrepreneurs with the skills and training needed to succeed in the property industry – one success story at a time.   Partnership and collaborating for success is at the heart of Property Point.

While one objective is to link SMEs with procurement opportunities, our greater aim is to make a more meaningful impact by nurturing a vibrant SME sector to enable economic growth, job creation and transformation in South Africa.



At Property Point, we believe that providing support to SMEs is an investment in our communities and therefore an investment in our collective future.
