STEP UP 2 A START-UP Youth Entrepreneurial Development initiative
“Putco has supported social and economic development in South Africa for many years through the Putco Foundation. We believe strongly in the role of education as a development driver and in support of this have run a dedicated student scholarship programme for many decades.
We are thrilled to be associated with STEP UP 2 A START-UP Youth Entrepreneurial Development initiative as core to our operations is the belief in entrepreneurship as an economic imperative – which is why we have invested heavily in facilitating the advancement of small bus operators by providing financing and access to our contracted routes. To foster entrepreneurial thinking in our leaders of tomorrow, the South African youth, is critical to future success of our nation and we fully endorse this initiative.” Says Franco Pisapia, MD, Putco Ltd.
Putco is a leader in bus transport in South Africa and has established itself as a core component of many communities in Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga. Putco remains committed to enhancing the participation of woman, disabled individuals and SMME’S in public transport.
