Johannesburg-based software analytics and solutions firm InQuba has been shortlisted to participate in a skill development programme organised by New-York-based business accelerator Endeavour. InQuba stands among 18 organisations shortlisted from 15 countries across the world.

Designed with the objective of promoting entrepreneurship across the globe, the Endeavour Entrepreneurship Programme is a non-profit initiative that draws support from major businesses across the globe to identify promising entrepreneurial ventures and mentor them. 

Endeavour operates on the principle that fostering entrepreneurship is a strong means of achieving sustainable and long-term economic growth, particularly across emerging markets. To this end, the firm has looked to markets such as South Africa, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and others to participate in the programme. 

From South Africa – a country where innovation is an increasingly integral part of the economy – InQuba has been selected to be part of the programme, which offers lifetime mentoring and support for firms. InQuba was selected after an elaborate selection process that took place in Stellenbosch in December, and is one of 18 frims from across the globe to be selected.

Alongside South Africa, InQuba operates in various parts of Australia, North America and Europe, and offers services in the domain of information technology with a special focus on customer experience management, enterprise performance management, campaign management and a number of other service areas.

The firm’s flagship product is a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that allows for management in a number of varying domains. The two co-founders of the firm – Trent Rossini and Mike Renzon – are among 25 entrepreneurs selected to participate in the Endeavour programme from around the world. 

Commenting on the recognition, Rossini said, “Our selection is in recognition of the fact that we are a high-growth organisation with a highly differentiated value proposition, and will give us access to capital, access to highly successful, international business people and the resources Endeavor holds.”

“The Endeavor network spans 34 countries worldwide, with over 1 600 selected entrepreneurs, which means that inQuba has expansion opportunities through partnerships and easier access into those markets,” he added.

17 April 2019 Consultancy.co.za

This year’s South African Professional Services Awards (SAPSA) have taken place, and KwaZulu-Natal-based financial advisory firm Bosch Capital has been named the Advisory Firm of the Year amongst companies from the Commerce, Law and Management category across South Africa.

Bosch Capital is a subsidiary of South African holding company Bosch Holdings, which offers a broad range of advisory services in a number of different domains. The firm offers financial solutions and support in the consulting engineering domain, in addition to its project financing and deal making functions.

The firm was established in 2014, and boasts the additional value of a Level 2 B-BBEE rating. Infrastructure development and investment has become increasingly essential in the South African market, particularly as the economy looks to gradually build momentum after relative stagnation in recent years.

As a result, Bosch Capital has grown in significance since its establishment, and the firm appears to have impressed clients with its abilities. The firm not only won the Advisory Firm of the Year award for SAPSA 2019, but two of the firm’s executives were also nominated for individual accolades.
