After years of planning, trial and error, GrowthStart (Pty) Ltd was registered formally on the 3rd of May 2016.
It was a long journey to this point, founder Bernard Loots had started in ecommerce and business in 2007 by doing freelance web designing and business consulting for small businesses in and around Johannesburg.
After several years in the e commerce design and development space several hundred businesses were online for the first time. What a uniquely fulfilling experience this is, the founder thought. Why not provide this and additional business services to the small businesses of South Africa.
GrowthStarts first products to market was a suite of e commerce, graphic design, video editing, printing, telecoms and consulting services along with a constant update of world business related news in an effort to provide maximum value to our subscribers..
The mission was to provide essential business services to startups and small to medium enterprises in an effort to increase business success in South Africa, fuel the economy and reduce unemployment through inspiring our audience, driving them to take action and pushing them into the path of growth and success.
