Our enablers

We enable corporates to procure services from micro-suppliers via successful digital platforms – or what we call our enablers.

SDI ensures the micro-suppliers have the necessary finance and guidance to provide quality products and services, and have appropriate company documentation (for example tax status, B-BBEE documentation).

Participants are ranked and vetted according to their experience and incentivised to implement the highest standards.

Our marketing and advertising component, Media Alliance, promotes the services of the enablers and corporates.

We work with corporates to get the platforms onboarded as fully B-BBEE compliant enterprise and supplier development suppliers.
