The South Australian Young Entrepreneurs Scheme (SAYES) was established back in 1998 and assists young South Australians aged between 18-35 to develop a business idea or to further enhance an already established business over the course of 12 months. SAYES assists participants to develop the skills and confidence to develop and implement their business ideas through the support of experienced mentors and industry leaders. Tonight, SAYES reached the milestone of turning 18, and Adelaide Food Central was there to join in the celebrations.
The fun and festivities took place at the Queen’s Theatre. There was live music to get everyone into the mood, as well as food from Delectaballs, Kitchen & Catering by Sam, Four Seeds, The Barossa Valley Cheese Co, Tuckers Natural and Jonny’s Popcorn Delights. And to wash it all down, there were drinks from Down The Rabbit Hole, Smiling Samoyed Brewery and Bickfords. Many of these businesses were assisted by SAYES when they first started.
Business SA should be congratulated for running schemes such as SAYES as it helps the younger generation realise their dream of running their own business, or taking a business that they’ve already started, to the next level. Many young entrepreneurs have benefited over the last 18 years and many will take advantage of this scheme for many more years to come. Thank you Scott from Business SA for inviting us. It was a pleasure to be part of the celebrations.
