Startups & Innovative Companies: S.Africa A to Z

Money has certain functions: it is a medium of exchange, it is divisible into smaller units, it is a measure of value, it is a store of value, it is a means of deferred payment.

At one point, paper money, the modern medium of exchange represented a claim against a bank to provide gold or silver on presentation of money. An example of a bank which did this under a mechanism called fractional-reserve banking was the Bank of Pennsylvania (1780 – 1857). The United States used a gold specie standard as a unit of decimal base-unit of denomination from 1792- 1933. Where did some of this gold come from and who worked in the mines to get it?

Can you believe that 40 percent of all the world gold ever mined came from South Africa. South Africa! where inequality existed under apartheid, and where the GDP per capita (PPP) as of 2017 was one hundred and nineteenth in the world (119th, 2017 EST.)!

In the 1880s, it was the discovery of gold in South Africa’s prolific Witwatersrand Basin—responsible for more than 40 percent of all gold ever mined in human history, if you can believe it—that helped transform Johannesburg into one of the world’s largest and most populous cities. Today, South Africa’s economy is the most advanced and stable in Sub-Saharan Africa, all thanks to the yellow metal. Business Insider 2017, Oct 31.

Over that 70-year period, South African mines generated approximately 45% of total gold mine supply and in 1970, they were responsible for 70% of the global total. The following decade however, South African supply fell almost 20% as mining companies encountered lower grades at traditional operations. As a result, global mine supplies drifted lower too. Tom Brady, Chief Economist, Newmont Mining Corporation, Gold Council, 2017 Sep 20.

South Africa today has a population of 55m, representing 0.8% of the world total (2018 est.). According to the Chamber of Mines of South Africa, the mining sector in 2016 employed 6% of all people employed in South Africa, with 457,000 people directly working in the mining industry. A rough estimate of the total of workers mining gold is 15% of 457,000, which is about 68,550 (less than 0.002% of the world population). Back in 1970, the world population was circa 3.7 billion people and approximately 210,000 South Africa workers were employed in the gold mines. For a 70-year period, 0.006% of the world population produced 40-45% of the world gold supply.

Few people know that the world’s oldest mine at 42,000 years before 1950 (42,000 bp) is in Swaziland in Southern Africa. It is called the Ngwenya Mine. The Ngwenya Mine is located on Bomvu Ridge, northwest of Mbabane and near the north-western border of Swaziland. This mine is considered to be the world’s oldest. The haematite ore deposit was used in the Middle Stone Age to extract red ochre, while in later times the deposit was mined for iron smelting and iron ore export. Several stone age artefacts have been found in the mine during archaeological works in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Their age was established with radiocarbon dating as older than 20,000 years. Later, radiocarbon dating yielded the age of the oldest mining activities as 41,000 to 43,000 years.

Though the world has other mines for historic periods like the mining area of the Great Copper Mountain in Falun (Sweden) and the lwami Ginzan Silver Mine in Japan, they all date to a far later period (13th and 16th century respectively). They all boast of mining a single mineral. Ngwenya on the other hand not only boasts of being the oldest mine in the world dating back to 43000BC, but also boasts of mining rare minerals that no other country has mined like specularite which was used for cosmetics all over the region.

Ngwenya also shows evidence of three mining activities within the site which is the Lion Carven mine for specularite and red ochre, Castle carven for 400AD iron ore mining and two open casts for the 1964-1977 morden iron ore mining. This site shows clearly the earliest mining technology that was used way before Europeans came with modem tools. Earlier mines in the world also used modern tools like shovels but in this one there was wide use of choppers, hammers and picks made of dolerite.

This is not South Africa’s only contribution to the world. There’s Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko and Safari Parks where various relatives of Simba live in, although we won’t cover them here. Southern Africa also contributed prime numbers – the basis of RSA tokens for Cyber security, art – the oldest Rock and Cave art in the world – stringed instruments, the Albany culture, Lupemban culture, Tshitolian culture and proto-writing.

I think Africans need to be more hopeful even if the Foreign Direct Investment doesn’t come and start to get things done. So this is a celebration. Below we celebrate those businesses that are being innovative and that are “bootstrapping” by necessity. No investors have queued up to pump $1 trillion into these startups like United States start ups are getting, but with the little investment that they have, here are businesses in Africa that are succeeding and being innovative.

This article contains a list of South African start-ups and established businesses with information about their headquarters, business brief, and founder(s). This list of innovative businesses may interest investors, suppliers and job-seekers. We hope this article will prove to helpful for our readers. Writing on these companies led us to a realization that the future is bright for Africa and that there are opportunities for other entrepreneurs to emerge.

Discovery outcomes:

  • We hope you find companies to support
  • We hope you find services you can buy
  • We hope you find employers you can work for
  • We hope you feel “Hope” that good businesses and integrity will always get investment!
