AAE South Africa Chapter



The Association of African Entrepreneurs (AAE) South Africa Chapter is an approved project of AAE. The Association is formally registered under the Ghanaian Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179).

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

South Africa's SME community faces a tough hostile environment, despite regular declarations of its importance to the country. The second round of the SME Growth Index - the most comprehensive gathering of firm-level data yet undertaken in South Africa - finds that around one third of firms report a threat to their very existence, and large majorities believe it is becoming more difficult to do business.

How will this project solve this problem?

We hope to help alleviate these problems and challenges within the limited resources of AAE South Africa through knowledge, information-sharing, partnership, advocacy, investment clubbing, grass root training et cetera. This can only be realised with your moral support, annual dues, donations and participation in our programmes.

Potential Long Term Impact

AAE South Africa has a number of projects/programmes such as Civic Projects and Lobbying, Community Outreach, Mentorship on Investment Clubbing, Production of Handbook on Investment Club, Membership Handbook and Operational expenses. These would contribute to South Africa's social and economic development on a long-term basis.
