16 Challenges faced by SMME These are some of the challenges faced by SMME’s according to an article published in the African Journal of Business Management (2010) as well as through discussions with SMME’s  Lack of access to finance – very complex projects with high financial risk are barriers to entry for SMME’s  Inadequate demand – cyclical demand for services (complex vs simple projects; high integration of services) negatively impacting sustainability of SMME’s  High competition within the industry – highly competitive bids issued tend to favor those business with more financial muscle and capabilities and spread (national vs provincial) 16

17 Challenges faced by SMME (cont…)  Insufficient experience relevant to a new opportunity – the inability to have the necessary core skills within the industry  Partnerships – ability to partner with established OEM’s for skills transfer and growth opportunities  Localized services – regional tender’s for Local Economic (provinces)  Regulatory constraints – challenges created by the Treasury regulations 17
