DESCRIPTION: The Partner Network can be viewed as an initiative to consolidate the enterprise support provided by “centre based” support agencies to ensure geographic spread.
The Department proactively enters into partner agreements enabling the Western Cape Government to be at the pulse of activity in the entrepreneurship arena. Organisations currently playing a cardinal role are the Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda), the Business Place (TBP) and the West Coast Business Service Centre (WCBDC).

- Effect interventions aimed at establishing new and growing existing businesses;
