This week, we will be looking at your typical TBE Entrepreneur profile in terms of their association with TBE and why they chose this provider or furnished office space.
What is an Entrepreneur?
Entrepreneurs are classified as a person who organises and operates a business that fills the gap between what products or services clients require while taking on greater than normal financial risks in doing so. They invest and ultimately risk their own and/or other people’s money to produce a relevant product or offer a service that can be sold at a profit, providing a satisfactory return on the initial investment.
In the South African economy, entrepreneurs occupy an important position as they serve to stimulate economic activity. In order for the country to be prosperous, entrepreneurial activity needs to be motivated and rewarded in both economic and legal structures.
This is a point that David Seinker, CEO of TBE, understands well and a core pillar that underpins the values of TBE.
