At Sanlam we’re committed to using our procurement power to stimulate the development and economic growth of black-owned small businesses, both inside and outside our supply chain.
We have three primary enterprise development programmes: the Sanlam Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) programme in partnership with ASISA, the Shanduka Black Umbrellas programme and the TSiBA Ignition Centre.
This programme has three projects and focuses on developing business capacity within our distribution network as well as our supply chain with selected suppliers.More
In partnership with Shanduka Black Umbrellas (SBU), we identify 25 fully black-owned enterprises with a turnover of less than R5 million per year and proven business track-records.
Our aim is to make these enterprises supply-chain ready and to support and develop them through the Shanduka Black Umbrellas Incubation Programme.
We’ve partnered with the TSiBA Ignition Centre to assist black-owned small businesses to improve their business efficiency and readiness to act as suppliers for large corporations.
