A small Business can be a success, a small business doesn't have to stay small. Africa like many places is full of small businesses and struggling entrepreneurs, from small shop owners to street vendors. Vusi challenges the African business community as a whole to help grow these entrepreneurs as most businesses need capital and other forms of support from the more well established businesses and for bankers to play their part. As a continent Africa can become an economic giant of the world. Known as a "Rock star of public speaking" Vusi is the only speaker globally to have been invited to the Dragon's Den as an investor. This is because he has built several businesses. Today, as Chairman of Watermark Afrika Fund he is spearheading a pan-African process of raising the largest Growth Fund of high growth, high potential entrepreneurs in Africa. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

If you're going to make money in your business, you're going to need an accountant, but which kind? There are so many, sometimes it's hard to find the right solution. If you decide to hire your accountant in-house, this video should help you plan your next steps. If, on the other hand, you want to outsource your accounting work, check out www.ignitespot.com (shameless plug) and we can get you into accounting shape.
There is a state of misinformation or ignorance about why every business need an accountant, or why not? There is a lot businesses that think an accountant will only cost them money and not bring in any benefit. Unfortunately that is not true, and the business suffers for that reason.

There's very little information available to the general public of South Africa that assists new entrepreneurs in setting up a business. With this channel I aim to change that.
