SiMODiSA introduces Venture Central, South Africa’s digital home for entrepreneurs. Officially announced at LeaderEX on the 5th of September, Venture central is set to become South Africa’s premium portal community for entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurship can be an overwhelming journey faced with an influx of information, advice from every corner but with no distinct direction in how to succeed and where to actually find what you need. With the current South African entrepreneurship ecosystems facing significant challenges such as rising unemployment, regulatory constraints, skills deficit, lack of access to markets and funding represents a strong need for a solid solution to combat the entrepreneurial needs.
The digital landscape provides a strong foundation for a solution to assist, facilitate and integrate the critical resources required to develop businesses at various stages (idea, startup, growth, accelerate) and stimulate economic growth. The proliferation of mobile technology also provides the opportunity to extend services to previously excluded entrepreneurial groups in rural and peri-urban areas.
Venture Central is an entrepreneurial community based platform with curated content from the entrepreneurship ecosystem. Various organisations and entrepreneurial supporters will be able to feed information, opportunities and important links into the portal. The portal will be managed, monitored and regularly updated for the latest tools, resources, events, workspaces and trends in the various industries.

Venture Central is your digital home as an entrepreneur and the main objectives are:
Offer you an interactive portal of all other South African SME portals
Offer you regularly aggregated business information and opportunities
To provide business links, tools, templates and resources
To provide access to entrepreneurship networking, mentorship and market opportunities
To list available workspaces, incubators and accelerators in your area
To assist SMEs to advance to the next stage of their business cycle
Now more than ever has there been a greater emphasis on entrepreneurship, its impact and its ability to contribute significantly towards creating jobs and growing our economy.
Entrepreneurship is vital for the growth of our economy and we believe Venture Central will become a focal point for information and resources for entrepreneurs and SMEs in South Africa.
SiMODiSA is proud to introduce Venture Central to South Africa as a solution to the fragmented entrepreneurial ecosystem. Your contribution to the entrepreneurial ecosystem is welcomed and we look forward to building a community of engaging entrepreneurs.
