Young Soweto Entrepreneurs: Organising for small business advocacy

"South Africa still lags behind its developing country peers in creating sustainable and employment-creating small businesses. What can we learn from others? A key lesson from successful and dynamic economies is the importance for small businesses of organising to tell government what the real obstacles to their success are, and what should be done about them. Following this approach, CDE researchers profiled 25 young Soweto entrepreneurs to find out more about their needs, and the support currently available to them."
