A greater goal for our organization is to focus on ways in which we can create a source of sustainable income.
“The Q Networq team has amazing people who are serious about their work. We had received funding and exposure to big companies like Google Africa. I used my funding to purchase a new uniform for my staff and with the second funding I bought bulk detergents that lasted me almost 6 months. Before the Startup Pitch Challenge, I struggled to manage my business finances and through their sessions I got to learn more about how to manage finances.”
Thando Radebe, Lithane Cleaning Services
“Since receiving the funds we won from the Startup Pitch Challenge we bought equipment, the equipment has helped tremendously in a number of ways. Our product has improved almost completely in its look and feel. We have cut down on the amount of time when preparing our pizzas. We’ve also been able to increase our menu offering with products such as fat cakes and are looking into adding bread as well as other baked goods for increased productivity in the mornings. We have hosted a number of events to increase sales and activities with the additional oven.”
