I have been an entrepreneur since the age of 15. In my first venture I looked after houses when people went on holiday. In the evenings I would ride my bicycle to all the houses and switch on lights and later the same evening I would get on my bike again and go and switch of the lights again. I also mowed the lawns. After that I had a couple of other ventures, I also entered the corporate world but left officially early 2002 when we started our first adult venture. I never looked back but the road has not always been easy.
Most entrepreneurs embark on this journey at some point in their lives. The earlier the better, the later, the more difficult it becomes because the risk is much higher. In 2008 I started a company parallel to another business. It was during this time that I realised that entrepreneurs are in fact putting limits on themselves and on their businesses. Most entrepreneurs do not know what they don’t know. They have difficulty in defining their business ideas and concepts, they have difficulty in creating their business plans, evolving their business ideas into a solid business idea that they can sell to an investor. Most entrepreneurs find it difficult to access start-up capital. Most entrepreneurs have difficulty executing their businesses and limit the risks associated with starting a business.
The Nxt Lvl Growth business model was born from the realisation that millions of people in the emerging market have to enter the entrepreneurial environment because they have no other option. They have to create a livelihood for themselves and their families. We also realised that there is a small number of entrepreneurs who are destiny entrepreneurs who have great ideas which should be enabled to develop and build enterprises which will be the job creators of the future. The aspirant entrepreneur of today will be the captains of industry tomorrow. We have to inform, educate and grow the relevant entrepreneurs in order to facilitate them through to their respective next level.
We believe that Nxt Lvl Growth and its two subsidiaries will play the enabling role of identifying and enabling diamond entrepreneurs. While governments wonder how to implement enterprise development, Nxt Lvl Growth engages with entrepreneurs across the emerging market and builds enterprises realising business visions and minimising risk of failure at the same time.
The Nxt Lvl Growth business model is a social entrepreneurship model.
We thank you for visiting our website and we are looking forward to helping you along this journey. I will see you on the other side.
