CREATIVE START was established in 2018 by Heidi Africa and Liezl van der Westhuizen where they joined their creativity, entrepreneurial skills and a commitment to assist upcoming entrepreneurs to generate an income from their own initiatives and skills.
The purpose of existence of CREATIVE START is to create an opportune platform from where upcoming entrepreneurs can apply for quotations, tenders and other income generating opportunities to provide their goods and services. Our model is simply to have a compliance NPC with all the necessary registrations and certifications to be able to compete with other business entities.
We want to build this company on the simple principle of business-to-business (B2B).
B2B is a business approach of doing business between businesses. It refers to business that is conducted between companies, rather than between a company and individual clients. Business to business stands in contrast to business to consumer (B2C) and business to government (B2G) transactions – although we will encourage B2C and B2G as the ultimate goal.
We approach our service offerings by connecting with individuals from a point of ‘what you have’ and not ‘what you do not have’ – working with their own skills and creativity towards generating what they need!
CREATIVE START will implement Job Readiness Programme workshops where we would make use of an entrepreneur within our network of support to design our manuals, the printing of manuals, delivery services of printing, catering, the venue where the workshop will be conducted, advertising / marketing of the programme, fundraising to sponsor the programme and project management of the project with potentially using goods and services of up to 8 entrepreneurs – instead of requesting it from corporate companies.
CREATIVE START includes in our services is to assist the entrepreneur who join our B2B network to put aside 1% per successful project / job towards the costs of setting up their own business with the necessary entities, e.g. registering with CIPS, SARS, etc. A financial expert within the network will assist the entrepreneur to set-up and become an independent business entity when the time arrives.
Sorry, no projects have been created yet.
