6 MONTHS MENTORSHIP

About the Mentorship

It is estimated that 80% of SA’s SMMEs businesses fail in their first year of existence; this is why at Themba Nkuna Coaching we decided to intervene in the form of offering personal and business coaching.

The mentorship is designed for entrepreneurs who want to start and run successful businesses. The aim of this mentorship is to help entrepreneurs understand the mechanisms and dynamics of running a business. The
programme is work intensive, entrepreneurs will conduct research, analyse case studies and submit assignments.
