Launched in 2017, The Yard is an exciting retail platform designed to give Riversands’ entrepreneurs an outlet to sell and showcase their products or services.
Access to new markets is often cited as the number one challenge that emerging entrepreneurs face. With The Yard, entrepreneurs enjoy favourable commercial terms, brand exposure and access to business support services.
The Yard’s support team works closely with entrepreneurs to fine-tune costing and pricing, quality and standards as well assisting the entrepreneur with product positioning and promotion. This supports entrepreneurs to become ‘retail ready’ and able to explore other mainstream channels.
Success is measured by an increase in an entrepreneur’s sales, growth in client base as well as the opening of other, additional market avenues for the business.
