Are you a business owner or an entrepreneur looking for financial support from the public and private sector?

Or are you an aspirant entrepreneur who wishes to do business with both public and private sector?

Perhaps you want financial and non-financial support from the public and private sector. If any of the above applies to you then you need to formalise your business!

As from 14 October 2015, the Gauteng Provincial Government has rolled out a campaign titled "Qondis'Ishishini Lakho" means fix your business.


The Qondis' Ishishini Lakho campaign is part of the township economy revitalisation project, one of the key deliverables of the Gauteng Provincial Government. Through this campaign, the provincial government aims to ensure that businesses in the townships are formalised through registration. This will enable them to qualify for business advisory services, financing, upskilling through partnerships, investment etc. and providing services to the public and private sector.  

On 02 September 2017, the Gauteng Provincial Government launched a new Online SMMEs Support System in Mabopane, to fast track applications and reduces backlogs. The launch of the Online SMMEs Support follows a successful implementation of Qondis' Ishishini Lakho campaign.
