Details on Programmes
Programme or product BDS
C4G has separated BDS into two broad categories, programme and product. A programme focusses on BDS development over the course of months or years, where the SMMEs often submit an application to take part in the programme and often the applicant pool is highly competitive. Product on the other hand, is where an SMME can use a specific service and in some cases there is an application process but not always. For product BDS, SMMEs (or the sponsor of the SMME) pays for product delivered (i.e. business plan), or hours of support received and the duration of this support varies dramatically.
