Who We Are

What We Do

10X-ing Your BusinessGoing from 1 to 10 staff, and from 10 to 100 staff are different worlds. The skills and knowledge required to scale 10X are totally different, and few scale up teams have them. That’s why 70% of successful entrepreneurs get stuck in No Man’s Land. If you’re scaling up and your team has never built and led a sizeable organisation before, the single most valuable investment you can make is acquiring cutting edge tools, skills and knowledge to scale a company. Because scaling up is a unique and acute business leadership challenge, generalist MBA’s and business management programmes are totally inappropriate for scale up teams. They’re too academic, slow, and time-consuming. We offer a ’Just-In-Time’ process to give your team the practical tools you need to put to work, for 10X a great business, with a time commitment that works for entrepreneurs. We also offer a variety of individual Boot Camps, company-specific scale up Workshops, and long term Programmes to help your team every step of the way.
10X Heritage10X-e was proudly created by Vumela and Edge Growth. Vumela is one of SA’s leading venture funds, capitalised by the FirstRand Group and the Jobs Fund. Edge Growth is an SME development form specialising in holistic, end-to-end ESD solution, including strategy and advisory, growth support, fund management, and programme management. Edge Growth has been investing in and growing SME’s since 2007. Through Edge Growth’s fund management activities in ASISA, Vumela and Action, more than 25 investments have been made into early stage, high growth ventures. In addition, Edge works with over 50 additional SME’s in corporate supply chains at any given time. "Edge Growth truly understands and caters for the needs of the corporate and those of the entrepreneurs. They have the ability to create practical ESD strategies and operational plans that are not only tailored to the individual entrepreneur but also yield tangible positive results within their respective businesses." – Boipelo Nkadimeng, EA to Executive Director Corporate Affairs & Transformation, South African Breweries Ltd.
