Congratulations to the BASA Debut Programme Class of 2022

Congratulations to the BASA Debut Programme Class of 2022! In November 2022, their graduation marked the end of a three-year programme of intensive workshops, coaching and product development which began with a selection process across all nine provinces
November 30, 2022

We ran a week-long bootcamp for Business & Arts South Africa (link) as part of their Debut Programme for a group of 25 carefully selected artists from all 9 provinces of the country.The programme aims to enable these artists to become more resourceful and agile as they set out to launch profitable and sustainable creative businesses from their artistic talent. It’s such a pleasure to be working in person again, connecting with inspiring creatives and sharing the platform with some of our awesome FURTHER entrepreneurs and coaches.

In total, the project impacted 450 participants who were collectively awarded grants to the value of R2,7-million to seed exciting creative ideas. FURTHER is proud to have been involved in their journey of growth and look forward to what they do next!
