Access to Developmental Funding:
UH assists its clients with accessing developmental funding available through the various developmental funding institutions, including: DTI, IDC, and NEF.
Every year, billions of Rand are made available to businesses through these institutions. These tax-free funds are made available as grants and loans.
Often, many activities you are already funding within your business can attract these types of developmental funds. UH helps you determine which funds are relevant to your business and takes you through the process of applying to the various institutions; with knowledge and experience, we are able to take the headache and uncertainty out of applying for developmental funds.
A Funding Matrix is a clear summary of the different funds available to your business from the DTI, IDC and NEF.
A top-level analysis of your business is carried out to understand your funding needs. These are then analysed against 30 different funds to determine which fund(s) is available to your business so that you can make the best choice for your business’ growth.
Business Strategy Workshop (BSW):
Only when you are certain about where your business is going, will you be able to plan out the route to get it there. This is a vital step that is often overlooked or left to become out-dated. If you do not have a clear written strategy for your business, this is an important step to take when deciding to access funding – to ensure that you are accessing funding that helps you achieve your business goals.

Enterprise Development Plan:
The new B-BBEE codes require businesses to engage in sustainable and effective Supplier and Enterprise Development (SED).As an EME (exempt micro enterprise) and QSE (qualifying small enterprise), you may be able to access funds and non-financial support from organisations that are looking to improve their B-BBEE score.
The key is to know how to present your business and help large enterprises understand the importance of providing you with support.
As a QSE or Large Enterprise, it is important to know how to implement effective and sustainable SED to ensure that your support not only helps smaller businesses grow, but also gives you the maximum benefit for your efforts.
