“ Broad economic growth and small business development are two areas that are highly dependent on an efficient , integrated and connected network of support platforms , such as these digital hubs and incubators ,” explained Billy Mabena , General Manager , Public Sector Sales , Datacentrix .
“ This project , and the many others embarked upon by SEDA and the Department of Small Business Development that aim to provide small innovative digital start-ups with the required support , will have a significant impact in addressing our socio-economic challenges .”
The Fourth Industrial Revolution ( 4IR ) presents a plethora of digital opportunities across all industries , said Mabena . “ What is also accurate , especially for South Africa , is that for this programme to succeed , it requires private / public partnerships that will provide small innovative digital start-ups with the muchneeded business infrastructure ,” he said .
