Lokal is never more beautiful than when our entrepreneurs come together to find ways and means to beat the odds.

Our online platform, Punch, seeks to support them in this endeavour by providing them with the tools and network they need as they set off on their growth journey.

At MCB, we believe that a strong, vibrant and dynamic local economy will make the post-COVID-19 economic recovery more sustainable. Punch aims to act as an enabler by helping entrepreneurs connect the dots and collaborate, because together, we are stronger.
