Eight Pillars of Development

Through the identification of key business hubs that have significant business potential, Shift Africa sets about establishing business pillars and business pillar partners. A business pillar partner (BPP) is the business that represents each primary pillar. Each BPP is trained, developed and empowered to build a business within a business and locked into a high-performance accountability system.

Key to a BPP’s long term sustainable success, is the requirement to source their own downstream business partners (Tier 2 or secondary businesses) that not only participate in the business but have vertical ownership. This structure is repeated to Tier 4 (lower level business).
