The aim of the event is to ensure that township entrepreneurs are informed, trained and connected with the necessary institutions that will assist them in propelling their businesses – collaboration among entrepreneurs, the private sector and government is crucial to the development of townships. The organisers wish to create a dialogue among entrepreneurs allowing them a platform to engage regarding entrepreneurial and economic issues affecting businesses in the township.

Experts will be on standby to advise entrepreneurs regarding issues in their business. In addition, 10 businesses in the township will be visited through the #TouringeKasi initiatives.

eKasi entrepreneurs will also be able to attend different workshops such as those on BBBEE, how to get support for your business idea and doing business in the city. eKasi entrepreneurs will also be able to attend "ideas generation" workshops.
