SMME Development Through Collaboration & Incubation

The Northern Cape SMME Trust (the Trust) was established in 2003, after a merger between the Kimberley Business Trust, the Kimberley Business Incubator Centre and KIMSEC. At formation the Trust, had a three-way business focus on the basis of the merger and these were viz: Job Creation, Incubation and Business Development. This approach proved challenging as the units operated in a unified manner and as such necessitated the process of restructuring. This restructuring saw the construction of the SMME Incubator Centre and the Self-help Centre, which collectively have the capacity to house 22 SMMEs.
