We provide a suite of entrepreneurial and business development services to start you off on your journey of starting or growing your business.
Entrepreneurial & Business
We give you the confidence to start and grow your business through our range of services.
At the Business Development Center, we provide free and impartial advice on developing your business idea, undertaking a feasibility study, procedures for establishing and expanding a business, sources of financing, appropriate business locations, marketing techniques, and training opportunities, among others.
This advice is offered to enterprises of any size, within any sector, and at any stage of operation.
Our talented team is here to help you complete all paperwork necessary for you to register your business name – either as a sole proprietor, partnership, or non-profit organization – or incorporate your company. Our services also extend developing Business Plans and Proposals, assisting you with record-keeping, costing and pricing, providing trade and business information, and more.
Grant assistance, once available, is provided to facilitate the start-up of enterprises and to upgrade enterprises. GIDC is currently providing grants to start-up under the Enterprise Business Development Component of the Climate Smart Agriculture and Rural Enterprise Programme.
MSMEs with the potential to export or are desirous of upgrading, growing or expanding their business will receive handholding support from the BDC team.
We will help you diagnose impediments to growth, provide you with recommendations to improve, and assist you in executing those recommendations. Handholding support can range from advice and inventory management to market research, access to markets, and other tasks dependent on the specific needs of your business.
