On 17 August 2017, Riversands Incubation Hub in partnership with Kaya FM hosted its annual FundEX event. More than 500 entrepreneurs converged on the day to listen to funding experts address financing for small business. The event showcased a wide spectrum of funders with the aim of exposing entrepreneurs to the many funding opportunities available. People from diverse backgrounds joined to hear valuable insights on topics such as building an investable business, how to become an inner-city property entrepreneur, and government incentive schemes. Exhibitors made use of the ample exhibition space to promote their services while break-away rooms were transformed into a Funders Lounge where delegates could book one-on-one appointments with bankers.
