Supplier Development Initiatives (SDI) channels B-BBEE spend from large companies to empower micro-businesses, working through platforms like Uber, Bolt and SweepSouth.
This benefits all parties:
- Large companies spend their enterprise and supplier development (ESD) budgets in a truly meaningful way while earning B-BBEE points.
- Micro-businesses get access to finance and new business, while SDI supports them with ongoing business development.
- Platforms – our Enablers – receive marketing and advertising support and assistance with onboarding as B-BBEE compliant suppliers to corporates.
SDI ensures the micro-suppliers are vetted, trained and have the right tools to provide first-class services to their customers.
SDI produces reports (like B-BBEE and ESG) to simplify corporates’ onerous reporting requirements.
