Goods and services are exchanged at every stage of the mine value chain. This provides an excellent opportunity for the enterprising individual to do business within the mining industry. However, entrepreneurs and professionals that want to do business in mining perceive the South African mining industry as a difficult one to enter.

Most small businesses (SMME’s) and start-ups usually struggle to sustain their business beyond the first 18 months of starting a business. There are challenges related to regulatory compliance, access to funding and access to markets.

The aim of the conference is to #OpenUpTheIndustry by providing a platform for:

  • the entrepreneur or small start-up to gain a practical understanding of how a new business can penetrate the mining space
  • the small business owner or business development manager looking for new business to build networks and get exposed to opportunities for growing a successful enterprise
  • big business looking to procure goods and services to interact with new business partners who meet regulatory compliance requirements.
