Starting your own business?

Here’s a sobering thought. It’s estimated that eight out of every ten start-ups in South Africa fail within the first two years. Will yours be one of them? Not if Business Owl has anything to do with it!

One of the top reasons businesses fail is due to a lack of knowledge about the fundamentals of business or how to run a business. On the flipside, one of the top reasons businesses succeed is down to having a solid strategic business plan, backed up with good knowledge of the way business works.
