The official opening of the City of Cape Town’s Business Hub’s new home at Strand Street Concourse took place last Thursday, August 8.

The City said the Business Hub Helpdesk resolved 95% of the 1 049 service requests from small, medium and micro-enterprises (SMMEs) and entrepreneurs during the previous financial year.

Mayor Dan Plato cut the ribbon and delivered a keynote address.

“This walk-in centre will enhance the City’s One-Stop Shop offering by expanding the services offered and reducing administrative barriers.

Through this centre, we want to contribute towards a business-friendly environment where we will reduce barriers and other red tape measures. It will ensure that all business support services can be accessed under one roof,” he said.

Three business owners shared their experiences of the help they received from the Business Hub.
