Black business must not only focus on township opportunities. Townships can be the so-called low hanging fruits but they cannot be our only focus.
We cannot focus on the debatable R100 billion township economy while South Africa’s economy is sitting at R3.1 trillion.
The African economy is sitting at $3.5 trillion while the global economy is at $80 trillion.
Don’t set out to start a small business. Start a business. Your turnover will classify your business for statistical purposes. But to you, you are running a business.
You can be township based with a global mindset.
