Black Entrepreneurs

About Us


The South African Black Entrepreneurs Forum (SABEF) was established in 2002 by a dynamic group of entrepreneurs that were trailblazers in the early days of economic transformation in South Africa.   SABEF is a non-profit section 21 registered company that endorses pure broad-based black economic empowerment.  We strongly believe that entrepreneurship is a conduit to poverty alleviation, job creation and economic growth in South Africa.

SABEF seeks to facilitate entry of emerging entrepreneurs into prominent sectors of the mainstream economy, through access to markets, networking, lobbying and advocacy, and by implementing solution-focused development and networking programmes aimed at ensuring the growth and sustainability of the emerging business sector in South Africa.
