Entrepreneurial Inspiration in the Heart of Africa

 

Btmt Capital, a tenant at The Business Exchange in Sandton, is led by a remarkable business woman, Busisiwe Mdletshe, who has an equally remarkable story and is an inspiration to any entrepreneur, determined to succeed.

LEAD SA Smart Business Woman of the Year

In January 2016, Busisiwe was acclaimed as the LEAD SA Smart Business Woman. She has also been shortlisted out of 50 000 applicants from the African continent, and if she’s successful, she’ll attend the YALI Leadership Programme offered by President Barak Obama in the USA. In addition, Busisiwe has been invited as one of the first Tax Panel Members for a live discussion on Tax Budget 2016 at CNBC TV on 24 February 2016, sharing the stage with experts from KPMG and Wits University.

Overcoming Adversity

Raised in KwaZulu-Natal by parents of humble origin, Busisiwe’s family struggled to find the means to provide their daughter with a university education. However, by applying for an early retirement in order to withdraw his pension, Busisiwe’s father and stepmother managed to send her to university to complete her Bachelor of Accountancy and further studies at the University of Pretoria and in the USA. Despite the financial worries which troubled her throughout her studies, this determined young lady soared with flying colours.

At the outset of her career, she worked as a trainee accountant serving her SAICA articles with one of the prestigious auditing firms, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) and later as a Financial Accountant with Mercantile Bank. She worked her way up through the ranks culminating in a highly-respected position which she held at the South African Revenue Service (SARS) where she headed up a team of financial investigators and auditors.

Busisiwe currently holds the position of Chief Executive Officer with Btmt Capital, a rapidly growing company that is responsible for Accounting, Tax and is a Business Advisory.

“As founder of Btmt Capital, one of the highlights has been the partnership that we formed with Inkunzi Investments Wealth Group, led by Owen Nkomo, where Btmt Capital took responsibility for the tax planning of Inkunzi’s high net-worth individuals” Busisiwe said.

Btmt Capital Services

Btmt Capital offers a unique team of accountants and tax consultants with proven expertise as business consultants. They also provide a variety of valuable and innovative services that enable both individuals and businesses to optimize their profitability and to minimize their tax exposure.

Looking ahead, Busisiwe says, “I’m looking at partnerships which will help us to grow regionally and nationally in this industry. Our major goal is to develop Btmt Capital into a reliable financial solution brand.”

The BusiM Foundation

A philanthropist at heart, Busisiwe has used her own experiences to help the youth of her village by securing bursaries for matric learners, through the establishment of the BusiM Foundation (www.busimfoundation.org ) and in collaboration with Tongaat-Hulett, the South African Property Owners Association, Bowman Gilfillan and the SA Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA).

Live Appearances

Busisiwe appears live on the Metro FM show, Finance Mondays at 11h00 with Bonang Matheba “Queen Bee”. She is also live on the UkhoziFM show, Finance Tuesdays with Nongcebo at 21H50. Tune in and listen as they discuss; personal finance, budgeting, savings, investments, business sustainability, tax compliance, tax planning and many other relevant topics.
