Small and micro businesses account for more than 60% of employment in South Africa.
More than 12 million people rely on smaller businesses for their livelihood. More than 90% of formal businesses in South Africa are SME’s. People start businesses because they
- cannot find work elsewhere
- don’t want to work for a boss
- need a way of making money,
- identified a money-making opportunity or
- because they are entrepreneurial by nature.
During its life cycle, an SME will benefit from planning, training and support with an enterprise development specialist.
SMEs’ success derives from tapping into niches efficiently, finding gaps which large companies do not serve or linking to supply chains which require specialised goods or services. Skilled enterprise development practitioners use their insights, techniques, research and experience to guide SME’s towards increased profitability.
