Diversification of a remote, single industry-led town does not happen organically.
OMDis Town Transform Agency (“OMDis”) is a Section 21 Company, or Special Purpose Vehicle. Its sole purpose is to proactively accelerate Town Transformation – the economic diversification of Oranjemund – to ensure the town’s sustainability by 2030 and beyond.
It serves this purpose alongside the efforts of other Town Transformation
stakeholders. OMDis’ focus areas are:
- Support existing businesses to become more sustainable
- Develop new SMEs and a culture of entrepreneurship
- Create new large industry platforms that can support the economy alongside or instead of mining
Governed by a Board, OMDis’ small team of business developers is led by a General Manger. The team’s core activities include: Economic research, industry and business case development, funding and investment facilitation, SME development and business skills and entrepreneurship training.
There is a critical juncture where goals converge with opportunity to achieve the highest ambitions. This is the inspirational moment when vision, competence and passion can combine to set a trajectory for the extraordinary.
To, alongside other accountable town partners, ensure an economically self-sustainable Oranjemund by 2030, irrespective of the future of mining.
Actively and with urgency accelerate Oranjemunds economic development.
Belong, Diversify, Conserve, Integrate
