Google Puts Small Businesses Online

New project aims to place 10 000 small and medium businesses on the Internet for free

Google, Vodacom and the Department of Trade and Industry have joined forces in a project that aims to place 10 000 small and medium businesses on the Internet for free.

Launched in Pretoria this week, the initiative provides a boost to the government’s efforts to reduce unemployment by encouraging entrepreneurs to start new businesses, as outlined in the New Growth Path, which aims to create five million jobs between 2011 and 2020.

In the same vein, World Wide Worx managing director, Arthur Goldstuck, has been quoted as saying that even though 65 percent of small and medium businesses in the country have websites, the 35 percent that do not amount to hundreds of thousands of companies.
