Johannesburg, 21 October 2016. Riversands Incubation Hub in partnership with the National Empowerment Fund (NEF) is set to host its inaugural FundEX event at Riversands on Wednesday 16 November 2016.

The one-day conference and expo will showcase a wide spectrum of funders and investment providers with the aim of exposing entrepreneurs to the many funding and personal wealth creation opportunities available.

“Many entrepreneurs find accessing funding difficult, while funders, in turn, complain about the lack of fundable businesses available. This event aims to bridge this disconnect by giving ‘beyond the brochure’ insights into how banks, government funders and investors evaluate a business. We will also highlight some of the innovative funding mechanisms which are now available for entrepreneurs,” says Jenny Retief, CEO of Riversands Incubation Hub.

The show will also feature an investment and savings programme to showcase accessible investment opportunities available with advice from credible financial professionals. This includes evaluating BEE share schemes, investing on the stock market and selecting the right financial advisors.

“It is important for entrepreneurs to diversify their wealth and income beyond their businesses, says Retief.

The one-day event runs from 08h30 to 19h00 and is open to the public, with tickets available online at

Riversands Incubation Hub is located off William Nicol Drive near Dainfern.
