Many would-be small business owners hit a stumbling block when it comes to accessing finance needed to drive growth. At BDTV we have a passion to help propel the growth and success of the country's SME sector. It's for this reason that we have put together a short series to help guide entrepreneurs through this challenging field. Each week our experts will go through the various funding options and talk prospective business owners through the application process; the pitfalls; and what they need to know in order to position themselves to tap SME Funding. SME Funding is hosted by Lynette Ntuli, CEO of Innate Investment Solutions and Kumaran Padayachee, CEO of Spartan.
