About Us.

Developing a vibrant ecosystem for SMMEs

Dominant Lions is an online community of business development service (BDS) providers that shares new technologies and knowledge, open routes to markets, and help each other create new business models. We are solving for SMME growth among Black-owned SMMEs in  South Africa. As Black entrepreneurs, we do not intentionally collaborate, partner or work together – and this contributes to one of the key factors why our businesses fail.

The age of the internet is enabling startups & SMMEs to leverage the collaborative power of online communities as a key growth strategy for success. Join our BDS community today!

The Tribe

High-potential entrepreneurs with years of industry experience & a proven track record of contributing towards developing a vibrant ecosystem for SMMEs.
