How can Township Economies can help grow jobs and improve the economy?

Many private sector development efforts in developing economies focus on small and medium enterprises, but few of these businesses survive or grow. Only a small percentage of small and medium businesses survive beyond their first few years, but those that do can have a big impact. Growth Entrepreneurs are people who lead businesses that create jobs and have a positive impact on local economic development. New research from the United States and Europe shows that small, fast-growing businesses account for nearly half of all job creation. South Africa has a high unemployment rate, and therefore needs to create more Growth Entrepreneurs in order to impact local economic development.
