The Enterprise Development Council of South Africa (EDCSA) is conducting an in-depth three-month survey on the state of enterprise development in the country. The objective of the research is to gather data from big business, enterprise development practitioners, business associations and SMMEs.

Your views and thoughts of Enterprise Development (ED) as sector professionals and stakeholders will be collected and help set the Council’s agenda for the next two years, with the objective of consolidating and professionalising the sector.

Key themes resulting from the survey will form discussion points for the upcoming inaugural EDCSA conference in July 2015.

Only through collaborative involvement and input can the work that the Council is looking to affect have the desired outcomes of a consolidated and professionalised sector. Your participation provides the opportunity for you to voice your opinion and influence improvements to the sector that are relevant to you.

The survey is anonymous – you will not be asked to provide your name or contact details. When completing the survey, please be open and frank in your answers. EDCSA will not be able to identify individual responses and the results will be published only in cumulative form.
