Entrepreneurship 101: The basics of starting your own business
Maluleke spoke about his book.
Description on Amazon:
Entrepreneurship 101 aims to educate South Africans about the fundamentals of entrepreneurship while looking at a uniquely South African business environment.
This book will help aspirant entrepreneurs understand the very basics of running a business in South Africa.
It will discuss what entrepreneurship is all about and guide the reader on the journey of starting a business.
It will take them, step-by-step, from having a business idea to clinching a deal with their first client.
It will address, among others topics, how to raise start-up capital, how to identify the bottlenecks that many entrepreneurs face in our country as well as explaining our unique labour laws.
South Africa is beset with a number of unique socio-political factors (e.g. the crisis of high unemployment and high rates of crime).
Maluleke has included a section on frequently asked questions at the back of the book in an attempt to provide in-depth answers to some of the questions he gets at his entrepreneurship talks.
