Abstract [en]

The study is based on the need for economic development and higher employment in South Africa. Political measures encourage organisations, like the Christian, non-governmental organisation, Project Gateway to educate disadvantaged groups in entrepreneurship. Through interviews, I have studied a group of 23 entrepreneurs, who participated in the program four years ago. I was able to find 15 people, of who two fulfilled Project Gateways goal of the program. I do find this to be low and recommend that the organisation work on networking, changes in the mentorship program, education in Zulu and encouraging lending awareness among the students.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie grundar sig i behovet av arbeten och ekonomisk utveckling i Syd Afrika. Politiska åtgärder uppmuntrar organisationer som den kristna frivillige organisationen Project Gateway att utbilda utsatta grupper i entreprenörskap. Genom intervjuer har jag undersökt en grupp på 23 entreprenörer, fyra år efter det att de deltog i programmet. Av dessa hittade jag 15 personer varav 2 uppfyllde Projects Gateways mål med utbildningen. Detta anser jag vara lågt och rekommenderar organisationen att prioritera nätverks byggande, förändringar i mentorskaps programmet, utbildning i Zulu och kunskap i hur man lånar pengar för att starta företag.
