the big voice of small business in the bay

If you own a business, manage a business or work for a business in Port Elizabeth, you need to join the iBhayi Small Business Chamber.

Joining the SBI affiliates you with a powerful organisation representing you to ministers, parliament and big business through our membership in Business Unity South Africa(BUSA). As the ‘big voice for small business’ we have strengthened our board and allocated portfolios of expertise. 

We will focus particularly on reducing red tape, the supply of financing, and opening up access to markets. Members can tap the expertise within the SBI through networks such as the SBI’s desks of expertise, and regional and sector-focused structures.

Through GrowSA, members can access an electronic platform service aimed at marketing businesses locally, nationally and internationally as well as linking to suppliers and clients in the virtual space. We believe in supporting local business. As such, regular networking events will enable members to form business relationships with each other.

Our Team Small team, but great power.
