  GAP Entrepreneur  


  Opportunities are born out other peoples mistakes.
Our government has not delivered on the educational promise.

600 000 kids matriculate each year with only 130 000 spaces that are available to enter University.

ZERO new universities have been built over the last 20 years to accommodate the growth of our expanding population base, leaving students and parents frustrated and confused about their futures. Angry and upset, riots are breaking out at universities where students are denied access due to overcrowding and lack of space in lecture rooms.

Even worse than that, 1,2 million people enter the job market yearly, and only 10% will get a job in the first 6 months, 15% get a job in the next 18 months and the balance will not be employed for 24 months or more thereafter.

It’s a mess, it’s bleak, and it’s unacceptable, but business people do not cry about such things. They create opportunities out of it.

It’s GAP Entrepreneur‘s goal to empower, up-skill and raise people to enable them to become what they could possibly become through a specific education program like no other. No more sitting in a classroom learning copious amounts of theory in the hope to secure a job out of it. Most believe a degree will solve your problems however it is known that education alone cannot guarantee you a job or a future.

We teach a specific business program that is applied through the 47 module program. Upon completion, students will have an actual business they themselves have built and the experience to go along with it.

If you feel that you are ready for a challenge that is both rewarding and profitable then you have arrived at the right place.

Gap Entrepreneur is new, exciting and different. It does not conform to traditional thinking, but rather stretches the boundaries and sets new sights for human development.

WHO ARE GAP Entrepreneur?

Driven by a passionate group of entrepreneurs with the explicit goal to build, grow, and enhance our up and coming entrepreneurs in the areas of business and practical application of knowledge.

With more than 45 years collective business experience in a myriad of different businesses, our team are equipped and able to teach, inspire, apply and build potential entrepreneurs to understand the pathology of business in modern times.

We are long since of the opinion that you can only learn how to be in business from a successful business person. There are too many people who believe they know how things work from a spectator perspective, who haven’t achieved the level that they are willing to offer advice to.

GAP Entrepreneur Team

It’s our actions that determine our results. Measure a person’s daily deliberate action and you can draw a straight line to their success. Action has opposite and equal reaction. Do the right things, get the right things.

Our team are successful entrepreneurs who have achieved success in their perspective businesses. They are all high net worth individuals. They don’t just talk the talk, but walk the walk. They have the fruit of success on their own trees and have little or nothing to prove to anyone.

They have achieved success through hard work, grit, mistakes made and lessons learnt. Their foundation of knowledge has been built through action, implementation and fearless deal making. Their success has been carved from risk taking, system implementation and quality management. They are readers, students of business and life. Their role in GAP Entrepreneur is simple:

  • To impart knowledge
  • To empower young entrepreneurs
  • To get a result for all concerned

Give them one year to open your eyes and give you the tools to succeed.
