The 7 Things Every Young Black Entrepreneur Should Know

As a parent of a young entrepreneur, it can be challenging to support and guide your child towards achieving their business goals. That’s where “The 7 Things Every Young Black Entrepreneur Should Know” by Karabo Che Mokoape comes in. This book is an excellent resource for both young entrepreneurs and their parents.

One reason why this book is great for parents is that it provides valuable insights into the challenges that young entrepreneurs face. Mokoape shares his personal experiences and the lessons he learned along the way, which can help parents understand what their child is going through. Additionally, the book offers practical advice on how to overcome these challenges, which parents can use to support their child.

Another reason why this book is a must-read for parents is that it encourages young entrepreneurs to think beyond just making money. Mokoape emphasizes the importance of

developing a social conscience and using entrepreneurship as a means to create positive change in the world. This message is especially relevant in today’s world, where social and environmental issues are at the forefront of many young people’s minds.

According to one reviewer, “This book is a game-changer for young entrepreneurs. Mokoape’s insights and advice are invaluable, and his message about using entrepreneurship to create positive change is inspiring.” Another reviewer praised the book for its practicality, saying, “Mokoape doesn’t just talk about the theory of entrepreneurship – he provides actionable steps that young entrepreneurs can take to achieve success.”

Karabo Che Mokoape, a South African entrepreneur and author, co-founded a thriving digital marketing agency. He was honored as one of the Top 200 Young South Africans by the Mail & Guardian. In his book “The 7 Things Every Young Black Entrepreneur Should Know,” Mokoape shares his personal experiences and wisdom from other accomplished entrepreneurs to offer a thorough entrepreneurship guide. Unfortunately, Karabo passed away in 2021, leaving behind a great legacy.

The kind of structural, race-based and class-based inequality that underpins our current economic system cannot stand. It must be overturned in favour of a more just and equitable model of economic growth that is more receptive to, and inclusive of, the needs of all citizens. Change is coming. Change must come. But between here and there, black people like you and me are left to find ways to thrive in the here and now. This book hopes to help guide you on your journey, to give you the best possible chance of succeeding. It is my hope that I can help you improve the odds in your favour, even if just a little. Black man, you’re on your own. This is an essential truth.”  – Karabo Che Mokoape
