Accelerating Women-Owned Business in Male-Dominated Sectors

Maphefo Sipula, who is the Senior Researcher from eTTP [Entrepreneurship To The Point] talks Accelerating Women-Owned Business in Male-Dominated Sectors.

As the country commemorates the 15th annual Global Entrepreneurship Week , Entrepreneurship to the Point (Property Point) launched its first research study titled, “Accelerating Women-Owned Business in Male-Dominated Sectors: A South African Case Study” 

Globally, there is a great move for development and support of Small business and Entrepreneurship but this need to be done in an inclusive way which highlights Women-owned businesses – “this is not a theme and topic” isolated to a particular month but one which is an imperative to the developmental agenda, There is a growing body of evidence around the world that shows that gender diversity is linked to innovation in business and economic growth of a country as a whole. 

Therefore, we can’t commemorate Global Entrepreneurship week without reflecting on reality that Women-owned businesses continue to operate under challenging conditions, such as discrimination, economic exclusion exploitation, and stereotypes. There is a huge gender gap in terms of policies and interventions that would help women entrepreneurs.

Breaking into the Film and Television Industries

So you want to be an actor. Or maybe a producer. What about an editor? Here's what you need to know.

So you want to be in show business. Maybe you’ve been working in a field that isn’t exciting enough or doesn’t use enough of your creativity.

Barloword Rallies After Results.

Dominic Sewela - Barloworld CEO talks Barloworld results.

Heavy-duty equipment multinational Barloworld says it will unbundle and separately list Zeda, the group’s integrated vehicle mobility solutions provider.

Zeda trades under the Avis and Budget brands in South Africa, as well as ten other sub-Saharan African countries.

The unbundling will be implemented by way of listing 189-million ordinary Zeda shares on the main board of the JSE, effective December 13, as well as a pro rata distribution in specie of such JSE-listed Zeda distribution shares for no consideration to holders of Barloworld ordinary shares entitled to receive this distribution on December 19.

Moreover, the unbundling will be implemented on the basis that Barloworld ordinary shareholders recorded on the Barloworld share register at 17:00 on December 15 will receive one Zeda distribution share for every one Barloworld ordinary share held.

Barloworld explains the pro rata distribution in specie of the Zeda distribution shares will be paid from sources other than 'contributed tax capital' as contemplated in the Income Tax Act and shall accordingly constitute a 'dividend' for purposes of the Income Tax Act.

PPC ready to respond rapidly to any infrastructure-led uptick in cement demand

Roland van Wijnen – PPC CEO talks infrastructure-led uptick in cement demand

Cement producer PPC says it is well positioned to benefit from any uptick in South African cement demand given that it has immediate capacity on standby that will require no additional capital expenditure to reintroduce.

However, CEO Roland van Wijnen stresses that without a significant increase in infrastructure investments, South African demand is anticipated to remain subdued.

“We have two kiln lines – one at Dwaalboom and the other at Slurry – that are literally on standby,” Van Wijnen told Engineering News in an interview.



Should these be reintroduced, at least two-million tons could be brought on within weeks, as the group demonstrated was feasible when there was a rebound in demand following South Africa’s Covid lockdowns

Key data suggests SA’s economy has averted a technical recession

South Africa’s economy is likely to have averted a technical recession in the third quarter despite record power outages, key data indicates.

Better-than-expected mining and manufacturing output is set to outweigh relatively soft retail sales data, suggesting Africa’s most industrialised economy returned to growth in the third quarter after contracting 0.7% in the prior three-month period. Mining and manufacturing make up about a fifth of total gross domestic product, while trade, which includes the retail sector, accounts for 13%.

“It’s going to be close but we do escape a technical recession,” said Sanisha Packirisamy, an economist at Momentum Investments, whose GDP tracker implies quarterly growth of 0.1% to 0.4%. “Growth is reasonably soft and load-shedding has been one of the main factors driving that together with increased headwinds that the consumer is facing,” she said using a local term for power outages

Standard Bank Publishes Results Of Second Africa Trade Barometer

Financial services provider Standard Bank this week shared the results of the second edition of its Africa Trade Barometer, which showed that there have been improvements in, for example, business perceptions that the Tanzanian and Ugandan governments are doing more to support trade.



Standard Bank Trade and Africa-China head Philip Myburgh notes that the recent resumption of trade barrier reduction talks between the two countries has contributed to this positive shift.



The second edition of the barometer also highlights the strong link between effective governance and business confidence and growth.

Kenya’s recently successfully concluded elections, for example, has driven more positive sentiment across the whole East Africa region. Similarly, the report found that successful elections in Angola and Zambia, and the change of president in Tanzania, has driven more positive business sentiment in these markets.

“The second edition’s results, now enhanced with historical comparison, also reveal more nuanced and often entirely new or unexpected insights, especially at individual country and sector level,” says Myburgh.

Department Of Economic Development Last Mile Delivery Programme

Gauteng Department of Economic Development in partnership with Radah Skills and Training Education Training Authority (TETA) will be hosting a graduation for 500 graduates in Pretoria as part of the Township Last Mile Delivery Programme.

Various companies in this space have adopted different business models. Companies like Takealot choose to contract micro-enterprises to deliver on their behalf. This means that young people interested in providing these services should possess a licence, have a registered company, have a scooter or access to one, and have other tools of trade. Other companies may choose to employ young people as employees to deliver on their behalf. This means that the young people have to be in possession of a valid licence and meet other requirements for employment (valid SA ID, language proficiency, etc).

Fewer than 60% of parents pay their school fees on time in South Africa

Schools in South Africa are warning parents that they are at risk of being ‘blacklisted’ for credit if they fail to pay their children’s school fees.

Credit bureau TPN said that fewer than 60% of parents pay their school fees on time in South Africa, with the situation only getting worse after the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021.

Many parents are under the misconception that non-payment of school fees won’t affect their credit record, but TPN said that schools could freely list non-paying parents with credit bureaus in the country, which counts against their credit records.

“Independent and fee-paying public schools are heavily reliant on parents to pay school fees,” it said.

“The reality, however, is that less than 60% of parents pay their school fees on time. This has a significant knock-on effect on a school’s finances, severely impacting their ability to meet their operational costs.”

Waldo Marcus, head of marketing at TPN said that recent assessments at four of Johannesburg’s most prominent public schools found that each of the schools has more than R20 million in outstanding fees to recover, with the highest close to R30 million.

INSIDE YOUR POCKET: How does our relationship with money relate to our identity.

When many of us think health and wellness, we think exercise, nutrient-rich foods, regular checkups and (hopefully) getting enough sleep. We rarely think money.

But “financial wellness is a component of overall wellness,” according to clinical psychologist Joe Lowrance, PsyD. He works with clients to identify problematic behaviors around money and create solutions for a healthier relationship.

“Financial health is having a conscious and purposeful relationship with money that is satisfying and isn’t overly stressful,” said Brad Klontz, PsyD, a financial psychologist and director of research at H&R Block Dollars & Sense.
