The Experttech Economic Chain Connection is part of a bigger Local Economic Development Product Offering and Short Learning Programmes by Dr Emil Nothnagel.

The four pillars of this LED approach to The Experttech Economic Chain Connection are:

  • LED Maturity Assessments
  • Capacity Building – Short Learning Programme in LED Leadership and Governance
  • Sustainable Municipal Partners - Participatory Appraisal of Competitive Advantage (PACA)
  • Development of the Local Economic Development Strategy

Due to Dr Nothnagel‘s in-depth LED involvement in South Africa, we as Experttech understand the environment in which the public and private sector function and our solutions are imbedded in a unique approach of LED intervention for Local Economies, Authorities and Municipalities.

The Experttech Economic Chain Connection originates from Experttech’s Vision: To Be The Ultimate Experiential Solutions Company for the Greater Good. This solution focuses on Social Rural Urbanisation and Development and aims to address the radical economic transformation required by South Africa through a concerted effort of the Experttech Group businesses, namely Training and Consultation, Wildlife and Tourism, Agriculture, Retail, and Finance. In keeping with its Motto: Growing People and Growing Business, the Experttech Group is expanding its wealth of knowledge to include Growing Communities, and strives to create jobs and transfer skills by providing a sustainable, multi-faceted economic solution to youth, women and persons with disabilities.

Utilising the Experttech Group’s highly successful Incubation training technology, as well as its own banking platform, our objectives include:

  • Co-operative driven Incubation projects, based on social economic development with buy-in from local stakeholders, namely traditional leaders, ward councillors, church leaders, NGOs, and ultimately people who will benefit most
  • Hands-on Incubation with continuous training and support
  • Dedicated back-office support with central bulk buying
  • All businesses being owned by local community members, thereby resurrecting local economies
  • The development of a rural  economy where  business owners  play a key role in the South African economy

  • Assessment of incumbents through jointly established selection processes

  • Renovation and equipping
  • Incubated training, coaching and mentoring
  • Central finance and administration
