Johannesburg - With the changing economic climate and lack of job opportunities, many South Africans are looking to be financially independent and start their own entrepreneurial ventures.
There is a belief in some quarters of society that entrepreneurship is something one is inherently born with and that it cannot be taught. There are those who, of course, believe that entrepreneurship can be taught by teaching individuals the fundamentals of business that will allow them to be better entrepreneurs.
Compelling arguments can be made for both points of view. Regent Business School, along with Black Umbrellas, are collaborating to create a space where both schools of thought can be accommodated.
Regent Business School and Black Umbrellas have partnered to launch the Black Umbrellas incubation lounge, which is housed at Regent’s Auckland Park campus in Johannesburg.
This is the first of three incubation lounges that will be launched nationally with the Regent Enterprise Development Hub RedHUB and are seen as a testament to Regent’s concerted effort to mainstream entrepreneurship.
