Affordable and Professional Services

When I started my firm, I needed a space where I could consult with my clients in a professional office environment, which could be affordable for a start up business. I then discovered Softstart in Midrand and that’s when a big story of my firm began. I found the place very professional, more affordable and most importantly very convenient for my clients. I started signing big clients as they started taking me serious, as a result of the professional space I was operating from and I could have meetings in proper boardrooms. I would really like to thank SBTI for the opportunity it presented to me as my firm has now grown from strength to strength. You guys rock !!!

Very grateful to Softstart BTI

We are grateful to softstart for helping us with setting up the foundation for Level-x. We have attended a number of training workshops at softstart and got introduced to other programs like Microsoft Bizspark, in return we were offered free training on HR, Marketing and Financial management during our stay in the program. We would definitely recommend softstart to any ICT company looking to break into a technology scene with limited resources. The office facilities assisted us until we graduated

This is feedback on some of the advantages and benefits of renting at Soft Start;

· Free internet · Free incoming calls · The reception area was free · Promotion of each other’s businesses within the office park. · Monthly rentals were affordable · Free usage of boardroom However, the big disadvantage was that warehouse space was not big enough.
