Nedbank lends small businesses a helping hand with #HandsUpForSmallBusiness
The past 18 months have been immensely challenging for the majority of South Africa’s small and medium enterprises.
While trying to recover from the impact of the Covid-19, businesses in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng were gripped by the recent looting and vandalism that shocked the country.
Nedbank is determined to partner with the nation's entrepreneurs to help reshape their businesses for sustainable success.
In collaboration with Primedia Broadcasting’s radio stations 702 and CapeTalk, Nedbank has repositioned the highly successful Nedbank Business Ignite sponsorship to align it with the current challenges SMEs are facing.
The repositioned campaign is called #HandsUpForSmallBusiness.
