Makers Landing, a development created by the V&A Waterfront in partnership with the National Treasury’s Job Fund, is calling on local food entrepreneurs to apply for its latest cohort incubator program.

The Incubation Programme

The new cohort program will begin on 3 August 2021. Applications are currently open and can be completed online.
