Sharing insights about the 2016 Entrepreneurship Research Study

#entreprenersinJoburg

The 2016 Entrepreneurship Research Study: Voices of Entrepreneurs in Johannesburg is a research study made by entrepreneurs to tell the story of entrepreneurship in Joburg. What makes it different is that rather than discussing problems, it’s about identifying opportunities and solutions.


It's the voices of entrepreneurs that makes this study important. We've taken the voices of 50 people in Joburg, including 39 entrepreneurs, and in one-on-one interviews and two focus groups, drawn insights on what it means to be an entrepreneur and what those who help entrepreneurship grow can consider when creating policies, strategies and programmes.
