Spoudazo Enterprises: Get Real

Elbie Louw - a fenomonal business in Bloemfontein - has asked me whether I'll be interested in attending this dynamic workship for young girls who would like to become entrepeneurs. This course looks very promising - go visit the website for more info:


Free business development programme for 20 lucky young female entrepreneurs Spoudazo Enterprises in conjunction with Citibank, the UFS- Unit for Entrepreneurship and BWA will be running a “Get Real - Development Program” for young female entrepreneurs (mainly focusing on Grade 11 learners). This will take place in August on the 13th, 20th and 27th respectively, as part of the Women’s month celebrations.

"Get real with yourself, with life and with your business" is the theme of the program. The first session will focus on YOU –on the person as an individual, her dreams, business ideas and potential career. The second session will focus on REAL LIFE issues like relationships, communication, problem solving and conflict handling skills and what to expect from life whilst creating your dream. The last session will focus on BUSINESS, concentrating on developing a business plan, how to obtain assistance, finance and budgeting skills and administrative requirements that need to be dealt with.

"This programme has specifically been developed for Grade 11 girls aged 17 to 19 years. The idea is based on awareness of the need to develop young entrepreneurs and to assist them in identifying their potential, to identify opportunities in their environment and how to plan to achieve their future business dreams, commented Elbie Louw of Spoudazo Enterprises . She added that the aim is to assist young entrepreneurs on completion of their Grade 12 year to have greater clarity on what they could do on entering the world of work.

To be part of this exciting programme, entrants will be required to share their business ideas by completing an entry form. They are expected to be able to describe a potential product, service or idea, to elaborate on a potential target market and resources required to start the business. After receiving all entries, 20 girls will be selected to take part in the programme at no cost whatsoever. An agreement of commitment will be negotiated with every successful candidate.

This is truly an exciting opportunity for potential young entrepreneurs, so contact the following numbers as soon as possible. Closing date for entries: 13 July 2010. For more information, contact Elbie Louw on 082 331 3391 or email:

You can download the entry form at the official website.
