A Fin24 user wants to help job creation in South Africa. He writes:
I have a few great business ideas (housing and energy) to help create jobs in South Africa, but I need help from government to implement these ideas.
Who can I speak to?
Business development consultant Anton Ressel responds:
Your starting point would be to sketch your ideas and concepts in a concise proposal document, which you have probably done already.
I would then consider an approach to the relevant government department you believe would be responsible for rolling out or funding your concepts (such as housing, public works, etc).
Alternatively, if the primary focus is on job creation you should approach the Jobs Fund with your ideas.
Just don't expect things to happen quickly - if it's speed you want, rather look for a private equity investor.
