Tenderpreneur talk derogatory
BLADE Nzimande coined the word “tenderpreneurs”, and since then detractors of BEE policies and black entrepreneurship have climbed on the bandwagon to abuse the meaning of the word. Nzimande has also not made things easier, as every time he opens his mouth he talks derogatively about tenderpreneurs.
A lot of black business people are disillusioned and feel their only hope of doing business is with the government. If reckless statements by populist politicians are allowed to continue, we run the risk of black business recoiling and the current resurgent black entrepreneurship being decimated.
