About Us

Dependable Partner in Economic Development and Empowerment – Since 2010

Ukwanda Growth Partners (Ukwanda) supports South Africa’s Economic Recovery and Growth by driving ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT and ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT.

Our passion lies in tackling two of South Africa’s most persistent challenges – POVERTY and INEQUALITY.  We strongly believe that these challenges can only be addressed by a GROWING ECONOMY that EMPOWERS ALL to participate in it.

We utilise our diverse expertise and experience in Corporate Finance, Financial Administration, Enterprise Development, Local Economic Development, and Project Management to support investments made for Economic Growth and Empowerment to receive best investment returns.

We are not just service providers we are PARTNERS.

Evidence of our operating philosophy is in that many organisations that start as clients end up becoming partners with whom we jointly pursue economic growth and empowerment opportunities.  Many of our clients end up becoming repeat clients.

We have successfully serviced a diverse set of clients including prominent organisations such as:

  • Mineworkers Investment Company (MIC)
  • South African Football Association (SAFA)
  • National Federated Chamber of Commerce (NAFCOC)
  • Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Municipality Economic Agency
  • and many others.
