The Business Support Centre
The Business Support Centre (BSC) was established in 1996 and has a head office located in Pietermaritzburg. It serves not only KZN and South Africa but also other African countries. The BSC’s mission is to link enterprises to business opportunities in the mainstream economy through the provision of a one-stop development and support facility.
Perhaps the pinnacle of the BSC’s efforts is the number of jobs that are being created every day as a result of business linkages in the private and public sectors, as well as through and loan facilitation.
