Unemployed candidates from the King William’s Town area in East London and Ikageng in North West were invited to apply for two accredited programmes aimed at enhancing entrepreneurial, customer care, and sales skills. This year, 105 learners were enrolled in the Herotel Entrepreneurship programme, where they were introduced to a world of possibilities, business concepts, and skills that oriented them towards innovative business ideas.
The skills development programme was combined with field marketing training to support fibre sales and uptake in local communities. This approach brought together the ability to employ and upskill the unemployed.
Not only does Herotel connect people through wireless and fibre internet services, but they also help to form deep connections between people as they collectively learn, envision, and imagine new possibilities and enterprises. The company is excited to see how these entrepreneurs will apply what they have learned in their communities and beyond.
