As a Nationality we found that we did not take advantage of contacts and mobility through our ‘ethnic communities” in the US/Canada where other entrepreneurs from other countries have done so for many years very successfully.

After discussing this phenomenon we decided we wanted tohelp and assist with the making new connection process. In 2015 we started the South Africans in Illinois Networking Group (which meets on a monthly basis) and expanded it into South African Business Professionals in the United States.

As members of the South African Business Professionals in the United States we look to connect like-minded people across the States AND Canada to create relationships that support each others goals and visions through social and business connections. As members we are looking to build long-term, trusting relationships within our community.
