Had lunch today with Boyse Pillay, the founder of the Enterprise Creation for Development (ECD) at the CSIR. Boyse's unit has been working for over 25 years to help organisations to create economic development.
They have a number of services spanning the areas above, with projects all over Africa, specialising in the manufacturing, agro-processing, green economy, ICT and built environment sectors. As part of this they also specialise in helping organisations to establish incubators. The ECD unit has a team of around sixty people, with offices in Pretoria, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban.
If you're doing ED or establishing an incubator I'd recommend tapping into ECD's experience and wisdom.
