On the 31st of March, SAIBPP is launching SAIBPP Connect, an online platform geared towards transformation, supporting entrepreneurship, and providing the space for established property practitioners to network with smaller developers and entrepreneurs.


This initiative reinforces SAIBPP’s commitment to changing the pace of transformation in our industry through focusing on supporting SMME by giving them access to our network and the capacity that will come through the Connect database.

SAIBPP Content can be accessed once you create a profile that allows you to get in touch with other SAIBPP members. It includes entrepreneurs, developers, and property practitioners. The gap between investors and opportunities is obsolete for anyone who joins the platform as they will all be in a single virtual room. This means that there is an increased possibility for broad networking, market access, substantive transformation, and contribution to B-BBEE rating.

This platform is created as a pioneer in our industry as it fosters communication between different stakeholders in a secure online space. This was envisaged because SMMEs are the largest contributors to our industry but the lack of development and growth leaves them small and vulnerable. With COVID-19 the property sector experienced the devasting result of a lack of resources and a network which creates the perfect opportunity for a platform like SAIBPP connect – where opportunity meets innovation.

The SAIBPP Connect platform will aid in powering the SAIBPP Enterprise Supplier-Development (ESD) programme which seeks to address the many inefficiencies in current property sector enterprise and supplier development programmes by focussing on market access. "[In addition to networking] It will work as an enterprise and supplier-development program" explains, SAIBPP CEO, Vuyiswa Ramokgopa, "it will allow us to channel funding toward Black, small-scale developers while ensuring credible practitioners and professionals in the sector are being profiled and absorbed into supply chains". The Enterprise and Supplier Development feature will improve market participation by adding more suppliers to the value chain and creating market-ready enterprises that will take the property sector to new heights.
