Creating Opportunities for Aspiring Businesses

Our aim is to benefit rural communities by investing in high growth opportunities


Thokozani means

“Be Happy” in Xhosa

Thokozani seeks to provide opportunities to aspiring entrepreneurs through the identification and investment into meaningful business ventures which support the Thokozani ethos. Thokozani is 100% black-owned investment company. The company comprises 20% direct ownership by black women business persons and community leaders, headed by Ndileka Nobebe. The balance of the equity, 80%, is owned by a trust specifically established to support underprivileged black persons with emphasis on women. Thokozani has through its endeavours provided assistance to over 70 rural families to date and will continue doing so through sustainable investment returns. Thokozani is thriving with the full support of the community and the strategic investment partners and has long term plans to deliver real wealth directly into the hands of the beneficiaries.

Our Team

Our Team

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
