Twelve foundations are fundamental to every business’ sustainable development

We have identified 12 fundamental foundations as essential to any sustainable business model.

Eight of these are business-related and 4 of them are personal.

12 Foundations


“The key task is to increase the number of businesses that survive the first
few years of establishment and progress to growth and expansion,
thus contributing the higher levels of job creation.” – The DTI

Coega Autospray – Investment enables growth support

Requirement:

Coega Autospray supplies small sprayed plastic parts to OEMs in the motor industry, primarily VW and General Motors. The technical skill required in this niche is rare and Coega has consistently produced high-quality products that have won them large contracts and numerous awards, yet growth had been limited.

Solution:

Edge’s due diligence resulted in Vumela making a R15 million debt-equity investment in Coega Autospray in 2011, providing growth capital. Edge Growth also helped to raise an additional R6 million of debt funding to finance Coega’s growth.

Results:

Combined with Edge’s growth strategy support, the investment helped Coega recover from an insolvent position and has created an additional 60 jobs, grown revenue by 400%, and enabled the commission of a robotic production line and a new moulding line to support demand.

BEE Partners

  • Alternative Prosperity

    We work with Alternative Prosperity (“Apros”) to ensure our clients have access to a comprehensive, end-to-end B-BBEE solution. We focus on the Enterprise and Supplier Development pillars, while Apros focuses on the other 5 (soon to be 4). Apros’ primary base is in the Western Cape, and the difference in geographic networks helps to create strong business synergies.

  • Trialogue

    Having co-habitated for our first few years of operation, we have a long-standing relationship with Trialogue. In the event that our clients require LED and CSI implementation work centred outside of the creation of sustainable business, we typically partner with Trialogue to make this happen. We have also assisted Trialogue in delivering a more holistic ESD solution to their clients.



Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment

At Edge Growth we embrace both the spirit and the letter of the B-BBEE codes in terms of transformation. And, as architects of sustainable, end-to-end Enterprise and Supplier Development programs for clients across the industry spectrum, we like to think of ourselves as full-time engineers of socio-economic change.

Within our own business, our approach to transformation is equally holistic. We’re aggressively focused on embedding empowerment at every level of the organisation and in everything we do, and we actively measure our progress against our own stringent performance goals, which extend above and beyond the benchmarked requirements of government’s scorecard.
