  • Optimise your B-BBEE rating, an essential ingredient in ensuring enterprise sustainability, as an indicator of corporate governance bestpractice

Who is BusinessFit?
BusinessFit is a formally constituted black female owned enterprise comprising a team of experienced business owners. They have grouped together to pool their respective skills and knowledge, with the common objective of helping support the growth and development of small and medium businesses. The team has done this because they know that South Africa's economic future depends upon a vibrant and ever-growing small and medium business sector.

An important principle for BusinessFit is to help an entrepreneur understand that his / her business idea is not in itself a business.

What is critical is supporting their "Business idea" with a sound business foundation, from which their business can become a sustainable and growing quality producer of products or services to its customers. The business should have the capacity to create employment and staff development growth opportunities, while providing an acceptable return to shareholders.

BusinessFit's passion is to grow entrepreneurs and their businesses, and to encourage a culture of continuous improvement in delivery of core competencies, client relationships and therefore, the provision of job opportunities.

How do we do this?
In line with the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice, BusinessFit will:
  • Confirm that intended beneficiaries meet the definition of "Black Owned" as per the B-BBEE Act
  • Assist such beneficiaries in expanding their businesses through interaction and mentorship from industry experts
  • Introduce best practice to help beneficiaries meet trading, governance and compliance responsibilities
  • Promote sustainability of beneficiaries' businesses through a structured plan to discover, develop and deliver
  • Work within the client's supply chain and enterprise development networks to help them improve their suppliers' productivity, sustainability and service quality
Supporting the Development of Entrepreneurs
As has been the case with many developing economies, the responsibility of our South African business environment's growth and sustainability lies increasingly in the hands of entrepreneurs and small business. Through innovation and commitment to supporting a better world for all, entrepreneurs help to grow the economy, and most importantly help to create sustainable employment.

BusinessFit's contribution, as such, is to bring emerging businesses into a circle of expertise, assess their current systems, structures, and goals, and set in motion necessary leadership and best practice support procedures to encourage the businesses' development and growth.

Based on the experience, the BusinessFit's team has gained within a diversity of business services, they are confident in their ability to help small and medium size business owners quickly and efficiently meet compliance responsibilities, and to introduce best practice in their businesses. BusinessFit's mission is to help entrepreneurs and developing businesses, gain confidence and clarity, and to plot a sustainable growth curve for their companies.

  • Increase the business's turnover
