WEBINAR: JUMP App - DEDAT's Digital Support for Startups

Please join us for our next webinar with Stellenbosch Network! Angela Abbott, Deputy Director at DEDAT (Department of Economic Development and Tourism) will be speaking to us and Tim Parle, Chief Director: Digital Economy at Western Cape Government will be co-presenting.

DEDAT has launched the new JUMP for entrepreneurs smartphone app – an innovative one-stop-shop for existing and potential business owners in the Western Cape to get all the resources they need to start, scale and grow their companies. Jump assists entrepreneurs with digitizing their business.

The lockdown is essential to stop the spread of the Coronavirus and times are tough for business. That is why, now more than ever, DEDAT wants to support businesses by giving them trusted information, access to business networks, tools and advice that will not only support them now but continue to be an invaluable resource for their success in the future.

Some features available in the app include:

  • How To – for guidance on starting and running your business
  • Biz Assist – to find local organisations and businesses to network with
  • JumpCast – for inspiring talks from experts and other entrepreneurs
  • JumpStart – a business health check that highlights new opportunities and ideas
  • Funding Assist – determine your funding readiness and be automatically matched to potential funders

The JUMP app will be frequently updated with the latest information on the Coronavirus that is relevant for businesses in the Western Cape, advice from industry sector experts to provide clarity on the lockdown regulations, together with guidelines and support to help your business adapt, ensure the safety of your staff and customers, and build resilience for the future.

We look forward to hearing from Angela and Tim and learning about this exciting new app to support businesses!
