'Information is what separates the good entrepreneurs from the great ones'

Young people are increasingly taking matters into their own hands when it comes to the issue of employment and are coming up with innovative ways to create a stream of income.

The latest unemployment statistics from StatsSA show how within the youth, those aged 15–24 years are more vulnerable in the labour market with an unemployment rate of over 52%.

Karima Brown sat down with founder of Legazy Technology Conferencing Zuko Tisani, Refiloe Manyaka –CEO & Founder of Twice Blue and Katleho Nyawuza - Founder of ExploreIKASI App.

They shared some of their insights on the world of business.

The trick is fail fast and look at the opportunities that arise thereafter.Taking too long in the digital or tech space may render you useless in a short space of time. It is a very fast paced world so you need to act as quick as possible, responding to the needs of the public.

Katleho Nyawuza, Founder of Explore iKASI App

Always remain as researched as possible, relevance is key to truly remain on top of the game. The person with most information is king. Information is what separates all of us, if I know something to a greater extent than Refiloe then I have got the advantage.

Zuko Tisani, Legazy Technology Conferencing

Speaking on access to funding, Manyaka says partnering with people can be helpful.

I partnered with people who had the same vision, together I think we were more resourceful in finding the capital to make the business happen. I don't believe that in your value chain, you can provide everything. Creating combine value can leave you in a better position starting off.
