The Marketplace is your online store where you can showcase your products and services. This is where SMMEs buy and sell to fellow entrepreneurs. You will deal directly with each other – helping each other succeed. Your dashboard will track responses to your advertisements and the orders and sales that you generate.

Community

This is your space, connect with other SMMEs and use your time and resources to shape your business. Connect and chat with like-minded SMMEs, ask questions and share your expertise. Our forum is set up around specific business topics – select one or create a new one and watch your support group grow.

Partnerships

BE PART OF A BIGGER WORLD

SMMEs and larger corporations can connect through the partnerships set up by Siyakha and Yowza.

Corporate Sponsors

Siyakha has had partnerships with hundreds of corporations over the years to assist them in the development of small businesses in their supply chains. Yowza takes this partnership to new heights as companies can now sponsor the Yowza subscription of their SMMEs as part of their Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD) initiatives. Corporations benefit from the assurance that these funds are being used for real opportunities for learning and growth and from watching the increase in skills and excellence in their supplier base.
