About Us

The heart of "changing business for good"...

The Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship South Africa (BCoESA) is a social enterprise supplier-development hub that aims to be the "heart of entrepreneurship in Southern Africa". We represent namesake Sir Richard Branson's core values to support like-minded, passionate entrepreneurs who aim to fulfil a larger purpose with their business. 

Through strategic partnerships, consistent development services and a "can-do" attitude, the Branson Centre is entrepreneurial in everything we do, helping to embed purpose-led business skills, and importantly, changing business for good.

We aim to find creative solutions for solving challenges to supply chains; help develop strategies and partnerships; and maintain consistent mentorship, monitoring and reporting to ensure the success of high-potential entrepreneurs who can later pass on their skills and knowledge.

In our relentless pursuit of entrepreneurialism, we challenge the rules of “business as usual” to change things for good – for people, planet and profit.
