The history of the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry started with the foundation in 1856 of the Natal Chamber of Commerce which was described in the Charter which formally constituted the body as the Durban Chamber of Commerce in 1884 under Natal Law number 31. After more than a century, and in line with a movement that was replicated in all parts of South Africa, this body merged with the Chamber of Industry to form the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry. In keeping with International Best Practice to ensure that its constitutional status is in line with contemporary requirements and expectations the Durban Chamber now operates and exists as a Non-Profit Company under the Companies Act 71 of 2008, with a proud legacy of being the oldest and largest metropolitan Chamber in Africa. The mandate of the Durban Chamber requires it to lobby and advocate on behalf of its members by addressing and identifying pertinent issues and forwarding them to appropriate forums in which business practitioners, through robust strategic engagements with stakeholders, drill down into issues and provide experience-based insights.

Located in the heart of Mossel Bay, the co-Mind workspace is attractively decorated with contemporary furniture, flooring, lighting and modern art. We also provide professional services such as open-plan offices, a private boardroom, high-speed and secure Wi-Fi connections, VPNs, along with printing and copying facilities. However, the term “co-Mind” stands for something much broader, it means a new way of working, a way which is co-operative, open, collaborative and network-based rather than singular, isolated and individual-based. co-Mind will continue to act as the stimuli and catalyst of knowledge sharing, serendipity and accumulation, as well as the vehicle for co-creation and co-development. Our vision is to provide a professional collaborative office space for our clients where vision and business can merge. co-Mind catalyzes and supports creative leaders, trendsetters, freelancers and entrepreneurs locally and across the country. We want to create community workspaces, accelerate serendipity, and facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration. We aim to provide our community members with an open working environment and opportunities to share knowledge face-to-face; to be inspired by collaboration with other members ─ all within a secure, furnished office space that provides fast internet, printing facilities, and all the benefits of a traditional office but without the high overheads. co-Mind is a contemporary office environment for the cultural diverse nation that we are in South Africa. Our aim is to create a space where businesses can flourish and grow by bringing together like minded individuals with a passion for business. The narrative that are to be reflected of co-Mind should stand for a space where all are welcome who are serious about growing in success without any bias or preferences related to culture, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation. The aim is to rather learn and inspire from these differences and enable the growth of one’s own business.
