At Enterpriseroom, we’re intent on contributing to inclusive and enduring economic growth for South Africa. This means accelerating small and medium-sized black-owned businesses (SMEs), while creating opportunities for youth employment as SMEs grow and expand.
Our work is designed to be SME-centric. We are demand-driven and have a thorough understanding of our clients’ procurement needs. Which means that when it comes to developing entrepreneurs, we can be highly targeted and industry-specific, ensuring that our entrepreneurs have the market access they need in order to grow sustainable businesses. At the same time, we partner with them on their journey, by providing individualised support through a variety of methods.
We guide and assist government and companies to develop and implement high impact, sustainable transformation programmes. Our offering further extends to supply chain, skills development, and youth and community development strategies and programmes. Our practical solutions are tailored to each client’s unique requirements, making sure we align to their strategic business objectives, ensuring maximum return on social investment, while meeting stakeholder expectations and scorecard targets.
We believe that innovation and technology can be a powerful enabler for SMEs, for entrepreneurial growth and competitive advantage. To stay ahead and grow in today’s ever-evolving marketplace, businesses need to be constantly innovating and delivering new and improved products and services.

As an SME ourselves, we put our money where our mouth is and have recruited several first-time work seekers through Harambee Youth Accelerator. We are also a growing business and believe in growing others, whilst doing our part in job creation.
We strongly believe that through starting, sustaining, growing and accelerating black-owned businesses and using an innovative approach to the BBBEE Codes of Good Practice, we can achieve true socio-economic transformation in South Africa, in a way that positively impacts all South Africans.
Our values define who we are, what we do and how we do it. They are our unwavering commitment to our entrepreneurs, our corporate clients, our country and ourselves.
As disruptive innovators, trailblazers and revolutionary thought leaders, we are the change. Always proactive, we empower others and ignite possibilities.
We’re savvy solution seekers, always raising the bar, who’ll stop at nothing to find solutions that are practical and pragmatic, relevant and real.
Curious and confident, we’re ready to take on the world, challenging ourselves and each other. We zig when others zag, do what it takes and give it our all.
Optimistic and upbeat, we move to the rhythm of South Africa. We reach out and lean in, listening with our heads and hearts, with open minds and arms.
We’re-up-to-date with the world and its ways, the whats, whens, hows, whys and wherefores. We turn up the energy, enthusiasm and drive to achieve.
We’re committed and connected in a multitude of ways, always ready to collaborate. So we’re quick to react and eager to respond, building trust on trust.
