Corporate Solutions

Case Studies

Economies thrive on opportunity.

SAFT

The South African Future Trust was established through the Oppenheimer Generations Foundation. In partnership with SAFT, Riversands I-Hub established the Project Thrive Fund in 2021, offering interest-free debt finance – Asset Finance, Purchase Order Finance, or Working Capital. The objective is to drive business growth and economic participation, by offering affordable alternative finance solutions for businesses that find it difficult to access finance through traditional sources.

Vibramech

A strong BEE scorecard is essential for doing business in South Africa’s mining sector. Vibramech, South Africa’s largest manufacturer of vibrating mineral processing equipment, entrusted Riversands to deliver maximum BEE scorecard benefit across the pillars of Enterprise and Supplier Development, Skills Development and Socio-Economic Development.

 

Nedbank

Nedbank, also one of the tenants at Riversands, has been a proud supporter of the project since its inception. In 2016 to 2017, the firm’s sponsorship catalysed support for more than 100 entrepreneurs while leveraging the existing Riversands ecosystem to create a multiplier effect.

Century

Century Property Developments is an award winning commercial and residential property developer. Century has appointed Riversands I-Hub to manage the 40 000 square meter facility with the objective of creating an inclusive, enabling, high performing and sustainable entrepreneurial platform. The management of the facility includes the provision of the multipurpose utility spaces, integration of skills development and conferencing activities.

Coca-Cola

Riversands has allowed Coca-Cola South Africa to achieve its global objective of empowering female entrepreneurs while also encouraging recycling activities. During the course of 2017, the Riversands team worked with Coca-Cola to ensure targets were met and women’s lives were improved in meaningful ways.

Jobs Fund

Although a founding partner, the Jobs Fund also partnered with Riversands I–Hub in the facilitation of Riversand’s COVID 19 response, Project Reignite. This was a 12-month program focusing on the facilitation of additional rental subsidies, employee subsidies and online learning content. The objective was to drive business sustainability and job retention during the COVID 19 period by offering structured relief.
