Enterprise & Supplier Development
Over the past 12 years, Ethos has contributed to Enterprise Development initiatives that support the growth and development of small black owned businesses. We have also made meaningful contributions to multiple organisations and charities as part of its transformation, social and ethics responsibility.
We are proud of the role we played in the establishment of Sphere Private Equity which is a successful black-owned investment firm in South Africa. Ethos’ relationship with Sphere includes representation on the Sphere Private Equity board of directors and Sphere Fund I investment committee. For more information, please visit their website on www.sphereholdings.co.za
Ethos also supports The Hope Factory, a Non-Profit organisation governed by the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA). See insert for more detail.
The Hope Factory has been instrumental in developing a sustainable business plan with a 100% black owned small business within Ethos’ supply chain. The programme provides financial assistance together with a platform for further training and mentorship. These initiatives are fundamental in assisting small business owners in achieving their full potential.
