HOW LONG HAS XPOSE BEEN OPERATING?
We have been operating in the public domain since 2017.
Prior to this extensive research was done through Universities, Colleges and private institutions (click here for more details).
The research focused on identifying the needs of all businesses (from sole proprietors to micro and medium institutions through to massive corporations).
The research culminated in establishing a portal where business related marketing products and services could be found that would ensure sustained growth of South African business.
Xpose is without doubt the next BIG thing for business.
HOW MANY BUSINESS DOES XPOSE HAVE ON ITS DATABASE?
Although recently launched we have around 14,000.
HOW MANY BUSINESSES DOES XPOSE INTEND TO LIST?
Our research indicated that there are an estimate close to 3,2 million sole proprietors, small partnership, medium, micro and large corporations in South Africa.
Even the little old lady baking cookies from home for the home industry is a business to us as is the mechanic working from home.
We will have 2 million business listed by 2020/2021.
HOW DOES XPOSE GO ABOUT FINDING THE BUSINESSES?
There is unfortunately no shortcut.
We have a team of Account Managers literally walking door-to-door, street block by street block right across South Africa.

We hope to complete this exercise by early 2021 at which stage we will have visited and collected basic information of 2 million businesses in South Africa.

DOES XPOSE OFFER STUDENT MENTORSHIP OR TRAINING?
We realised very quickly that one cannot simulate a business environment in a computer lab.
We also realised that many students have to do practical work as part of their curriculum in order to qualify.
As a result we are partnering with Universities and Colleges and offer students a choice of programs:
- Students are mentored
- Theory and practice is integrated
- Mentorship starts at a basic level
- Education Institutions receive log sheets and performance reports
- Students receive testimonials

We will launch an aggressive social media campaign soon.
Part of our ‘creating awareness’ program will be to drive a concerted ‘buy local – support local‘ program.
