Sorbet partners with Bidvest Bank to boost female entrepreneurship in South Africa
Empowering female entrepreneurs is driving economic growth in countries around the world, including South Africa. According to research conducted by the McKinsey Global Institute, female business owners are contributing R175bn a year to GDP and, between 2018 and 2021, created one million new jobs worldwide. Significant barriers to entry nevertheless remain, especially for women from historically disadvantaged communities. The cause is two-fold: firstly, their ability to access start-up capital is often very limited and, secondly, many lack the business and financial skills needed to set up and run a successful business. 15 Jul 2024 Read more

Jozi's first artisan distillery by Mirari Gin
The City of Gold's first artisan distillery is nestled in the heart of Johannesburg's trendy Maboneng precinct.
