  1. I have written a long response on here and decided to delete it due to its negativity. I am not a negative person, but do find it extremely difficult to find funding for my start up.
    I have had many great business opportunities and can prove that some of them has actually worked saving companies millions of Rands, the only thing is that this only happens when you work for a company that already has the funds to develop your ideas.
    There are no institutions that are willing to even listen to you unless you have been trading for 2 years or more. You can subscribe to angel investment website at a cost, but if you cannot even afford these costs you cant find investors. Also these networks have no guarantee that you will find an investor. Also if you do get in touch with a potential investor they want to see a business plan. I have tried to write my business plan but don’t have the knowledge to do so and have failed miserably. You can ask someone to write a business plan for you, but yet again that comes at an un-affordable cost.
    The list and examples are endless, but I will keep trying till my dying day, as I see value in what I have to offer.
