Beneficiary of the week: Andre Williams

The 32-year-old Andre Williams from Kuilsriver in Cape Town, Western Cape, holds a Mechanical Engineering qualification from False Bay College.

With the knowledge he acquired, he decided to open his own business that would allow him to exercise and expand his skill set. The young aspiring entrepreneur viewed the NYDA as an appropriate agency that would greatly assist in this regard.  Andre then decided to take the first step by visiting the Cape Town branch, where he was advised about both the financial and non-financial support.
The Cape Town-based young entrepreneur initially enrolled for the Business Management Training that is offered by the NYDA, subsequently applied and was awarded the Grant Funding  of R50 000 to buy engineering tools and equipment. He currently employs two people on full-time, as well as the other two on a temporary basis.
