our history


SBP is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

SBP is a direct descendant of the Sunnyside Group - a network of South African companies, business associations and NGOs established in 1987 in the early stages of South Africa's transition to democracy, aiming to bring about the conditions necessary for national economic success, with a particular focus on regulatory reform (working initially for the repeal of apartheid legislation restricting participation in the private sector).

In 1998 SBP was formally registered as the Small Business Project, a Section 21 not-for-profit company.

SBP has rapidly expanded the range of our activities to encompass the business environment in general, while retaining a strong interest in small business in particular as a vehicle for economic growth and job creation.

We have also extended our geographic reach into sub-Saharan Africa, and even more broadly, as can be seen under Our scope.
