Inyosi Empowerment was created in partnership with Stellar Credit (Pty) Ltd and Mineworkers Investment Company (Pty) Ltd. The Inyosi Enterprise Development Investment, has been offered since 2012, was rebranded (from Cadiz Enterprise Development Investment) and relaunched in the first quarter of 2016.
Inyosi Empowerment – the BEE specialists – draws it inspiration from the African bee (inyosi is the Nguni word for bee). A bee hive is the embodiment of individuals working together for a common good. Inyosi Empowerment draws together companies and black-owned businesses in a sustainable manner.
The Inyosi Enterprise Development Investment and the Inyosi Supplier Development Investment are two specialist investment funds which focus on providing funding and ancillary support to black-owned businesses. Inyosi Empowerment provides loan funding to companies with a minimum of 3 to 5 year track record, more than 51% black owned and with a turnover of less than R50 million.
As a result of the significant track record built up in this space since the launch of our Enterprise Development Investment solution in 2012, and with the Amended Codes of Good Practice requiring a supplier development solution, we have developed and launched the Inyosi Supplier Development Investment as a complementary investment-based supplier development solution to the South African market.
Since inception in 2012, over 400 companies have invested into these investment based solutions and have enjoyed a professional, informed and market-leading solution for their BEE scorecard needs. With the addition of the Inyosi Supplier Development Investment, Inyosi Empowerment is now able to offer existing and prospective clients a comprehensive solution to their enterprise and supplier development needs.
