During the COVID-19 pandemic, YW Capital committed R20 million to the Business Acceleration Fund to support businesses positioned to deliver on the South African government’s social and economic objectives, particularly those which were negatively affected by the ongoing ramifications of the pandemic.
To date YW Capital has continued to help businesses within a defined set of criteria.
