Friday, 15 August 2008 16:48 - where ideas become business plans

{pp}The future “will not belong to the conglomerates or global institutions alone. It will belong to entrepreneurs - individuals who have the courage to dream and develop compelling visions - individuals who can see opportunity and match it to an idea - who can ultimately turn their dreams into reality.” - Janssen Davies (then CEO - SAGE)

It is against this background that a group of senior business people in Gauteng decided to give back to the community and funded the development of Bizwave, an idea and business development internet platform that allows South Africans to collaborate with each other in order to conceive and create new business at a rate not achievable before.

This platform allows any South African to develop his or her business ideas into fully implementable business plans, facilitating the required business resources and testing the market for his or her business services and products.

The platform is accessible at no cost to the potential entrepreneur. During the development of a business idea, the idea owner is in full control of the confidentiality of the various elements of his developing business plan and has access to a number of statutory, and other, intellectual property protection mechanisms on the platform. Potential entrepreneurs can now start using the Bizwave platform to gain access to business/entrepreneurial support such as:

  • The development of innovative business ideas in a collaborative manner • Get exposed to like-minded peers
  • Resource facilitation
  • Get access to business and entrepreneurial mentors
  • Business plan development
  • Feasibility evaluation
  • Strategy development
  • Budgeting and financial planning
  • Knowledge development
  • Funding and support
  • Access to local business networks/communities.

The idea development platform is a front runner in developing the future South African business culture where business networks are sustained by people working together around multiple, diverse business ideas.

These ideas are built collaboratively instead of the traditional approach where each entrepreneur was expected to be an expert in all business areas of his or her new business. Once a month, Bizcommunity members will be informed about new Bizwave services, products and tools available to entrepreneurs and business minded individuals. aims to empower all South Africans to take responsibility and ownership of their own futures so they can create sustainable wealth and growth - for a better life for us all.
