We Create Jobs

We help solve the unemployment crisis by turning ordinary people into business owners in a matter of weeks, creating an income for them while serving the community’s needs.

Create a Business Owner. Create a Job.

Our Biggest Challenges

Too expensive

According to a 2018 World Bank report: It costs on average USD 30,000 to create one blue-collar job, which is not cost-effective or sustainable in Africa or other developing countries. We need to lower the cost of job creation.

Takes too long

Current job creation and incubation programs aim to create jobs in 6 to 12 months, which is too long. When you need to care for yourself and your loved ones, you need results now.

Our solution:

The Rapid Job Creation Program

South Africa’s unemployment is a ticking timebomb and the time and cost required to fix it are just too much. However, the Human Entrepreneur has created 35 jobs in 21 days through its Rapid Job Creation Program. It has reduced the cost to less than R30,000 per job and requires only weeks, rather than months, to implement.

The Rapid Job Creation Program

The Rapid Job Creation Program reduces the cost of job creation below $2,500 and is only 5 weeks long. Equivalent to 10 – 20% of the per-person cost of a 12-month entrepreneurship program.

The Rapid Job Creation Program consists of two parts, the Entrepreneurial Awakening Course and the Business Creator Pre-Incubator.

Our Results

In fact, in November 2020, we took 50 people from a previously disadvantaged background in South Africa. They had to build businesses in 21 days, making enough profit to replace their $350 (R5000) salary per month.

We created 35 jobs/businesses in 21 days. None of the businesses created required external funding.

Sustainability

We left the group from November 2020 alone for 3 months, provided no support, coaching or mentoring, then we spoke to 27 of the 35 businesses:

  • All businesses are still trading
  • An extra 8 businesses were created
  • 2 Businesses were tested at low risk or no risk but were not started
  • Other businesses added extra product or service lines

Client Testimonials

“I started my business last year in June. When I started this business I thought I would get 10 customers at the same time but I only got a few customers. I started to lose hope in my business. Since I started the human entrepreneur pre-incubator program I realised that I have to work hard and I don’t need funding for my business. All I have to do is work hard look for customers because customers can’t look for me if I don’t work hard.

Now I’m happy because my business is running smoothly and I have more than 100 paying customers. I would like to thank the human entrepreneur pre-incubator program for pushing me, I really appreciate that.”

MPHAHLELE MGIBA

“I started my intrapreneurial training two weeks ago and learned how to make money and be able to start a business. It was an easy thing to do, but I never thought I could open a business and operated in one day. The human entrepreneur pre-incubator program made this possible.

In just two weeks I have 16 paying customers which I charge R90 per customer once a month. I am happy that I am making money.

What is interesting is that I was able to register my business and I got the knowledge of that there is no need for a business plan and funding. If you want to start your business start now.

I’m very grateful for the great opportunity that I got.”

LINDIWE MOSEA

“I am grateful for the human entrepreneur pre-incubator program. I always wanted to start a business but I always wanted to ask for funding. This program taught me that I don’t need funding to start the business.

I’ve learned that to get customers I need to speak to customers. I don’t need to rely on social media only. During this pre-incubator program, I learned from my colleagues and classmates that it doesn’t matter the business idea but that you can make it.

I started my cleaning business two weeks ago and I’ve made money and I have 10 paying customers. I am very grateful to the human entrepreneur pre-incubator program because I now have registered and working business.”
