Sibusiso Raphekwane | Masters’ Degree
A passionate entrepreneurship advocate and development enthusiast at heart, Busi Raphekwane talks and walks enterprise development. With 13 years of corporate experience and 9 years in the enterprise development sphere as an entrepreneur development consultant and business mentor, it is no surprise that she is the co-founder and director of The Transformation Legacy.
Her passion and vast wealth of experience is anchored by a BCom Degree in Accounting Sciences, Masters’ Degree in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development from the University of Pretoria and an Ontological Coaching qualification from the International Coaching Federation.
Her daily mission is to transform the SMME sector by developing sustainable Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME’s) that can contribute meaningfully to the economy.While entrepreneurship and socio-economic transformation have always been an interest and a passion for her, it was only after her experience of running her own businesses; that she started channeling this passion towards the sustainable development of entrepreneurs.
During 2013 and 2014, she was awarded numerous awards including the Best Performer in the area of Mentorship.
As a mentor, her flare is implementing turnaround strategies for businesses; one of which saw a catering company that was operating at a -71% loss, achieving a positive net profit a year after the intervention.
This was achieved by directing all interventions on the business owners, ensuring that they are confident and have the relevant skills and capacity to grow their business and navigate the inherent challenges of building a sustainable enterprise.
She’s driven by her vision to build legacy businesses that can leave a lasting impact on the economy of our nation and our continent at large. In South Africa, a country riddled with high unemployment and poverty levels, the support of vibrant self-generating and self-reliant enterprises cannot be ignored.
Besides her passion for transformation and building sustainable enterprises, Busi loves fashion designing and all things "art". She also dedicates her time to raising her three young boys and building a solid family. She believes in living a balanced life filled with love, compassion, serenity and fulfillment.
