Here is a reminder of who WiMBIZ is:
WiMBIZ South Africa is a non-profit organisation established to create a platform for businesswomen, women entrepreneurs and professionals to speak in one voice and access opportunities in the mining sector in a coordinated manner.
After completing the registration form below, you will be redirected to a WiMBIZ Database Information Request form. (This step is critical to completing your membership application.)
The database will be used as a business directory shared with our partnering companies to enable them to identify companies that they can consider for various procurement opportunities.
We require basic information to establish whether companies meet the criteria of our partner companies; if not, what mechanisms could be implemented to assist non-compliant companies. Companies will be included in the database free of charge.
- This is “Women in Mining Business”, so the organisation’s ownership must be a woman or women.
- WiMBIZ will create a database of its members and may, from time to time, be requested to share its members’ personal information with third parties for the purpose of exploring business and funding opportunities for its members within its stated mission and objectives. If you do not allow us to share your information, we regret that you will not form part of our database and will not be alerted to possible opportunities for your company.
