When will Government funding agencies and private sector reduce the red tape

How long will entrepreneurs suffer due to lack of forward thinking from government and private sector. South Africa is ranked on the bottom third in terms of emerging country the entrepreneurial spirit is dented by lack of funding.

Thulani you just posed a very sharp point indeed!!.for as much as we strive for public good and change in our communities,this is already an issue by itself that we trying to create solutions or interventions to as young aspiring social entrepreneurs,and the government is creating problems to our solutions by this RED TAPE!!,imagine a group of young people having a wonderful project that has an impact to their community e.g addressing unemployment and poverty.those are the issues the very same government is promising the people in their campaigns and manifestos to resolve, luring our hopeless people to vote for them,why is the government failing to see that our main intervention as social entrepreneurs is creating solutions to issues faced by our communities ( the government’s people),what we are saying to the government is help us so that we can help your people and guess what? the answer is we wan’t 5 years experience and proven record in the field + collateral!! and that is a pure definition of RED TAPING!! #government please lower your requirements!!

As young people before we can talk funding we need to create funding worth entrepreneurs. We need the education of what we need to elevate our business

I beg to differ Phathutshedzo!! Education on its own cannot elevate your business, accessing funding is essential in every development of startup

Government should make business incubations that also offer funding, that way education on how to run your business will be given and at the same time you get the money to get going. Government doesn’t care about it’s people of our upliftment, they’re only focused on their own pockets. So social entrepreneurs are last on their consideration food chain. We need to reach out to other avenues like this one.

Well said Junie!! Thanks for understanding the importance of funds to get going… It’s struggle will all have to unite and overcome Aluta!!!
