The iBhayi Small Business Chamber is geared specifically to the needs of small to medium businesses in Port Elizabeth.

Why join iBhayi Small Business Chamber?

The needs of a small to medium enterprise is very different to the needs of big business and corporate companies, so we need a business chamber who understands the unique and sometimes complex challenges that a small business owner has to deal with


As a united group we provide a significantly big voice for small businesses.

We are affiliated to the SBI (Small Business Institute) – formerly known as the AHI (Afrikaanse Handelsinstituut) and through SBI we have a voice to government and big business – see the SBI website to read more:


Our fee structure is affordable, so even the smallest business has an opportunity to join

Most small businesses need more business to grow and flourish. Full stop. One way to get more business is to network and build business relationships with other small business owners.


This is where iBhayi Small Business Chamber steps in!

* To hold regular network evenings (on a monthly basis)
* To give business owners the opportunity to host a networking evening at their own business premises or a venue of their choice (what a great opportunity to get +/-50 new people into your business in the space of 2 hours). The host is given an opportunity to address the guests and to market his business;
* To hold regular speed-networking events;

From time to time to invite special guests to address our member meetings on topics of general interest to small business owners.

Once you have joined, your business is listed on our member page with a link which pulls through to your website
