HOW IT WORKS
Firstwatch Whisky is looking for individuals with entrepreneurial spirit. Big thinkers with drive and ambition. Go-getters who are open to learning and are always looking for solutions. Do you have what it takes?
Firstwatch Whisky will select 100 budding entrepreneurs – small business owners, informal business owners and people who have a great idea and are trying to get a business off the ground. These promising individuals will be invited to join a two-day Firstwatch Entrepreneurs Workshop where they will be taught essential hands-on business skills by some of SA’s leading business experts.
At the culmination of the workshop, entrepreneurs will be given the opportunity to pitch their business or business idea to a panel of judges – where the top 10 will be selected.
All entrepreneurs will be invited to attend the closing ceremony on the 19th May, where the top 10 will pitch to the entire audience including a final panel of judges and successful entrepreneurs. The overall winner will walk away with R50 000’s worth of support for their existing or start-up business.
