About Letsema

Letsema, the first black-owned management consulting company in South Africa, started 22 years ago as a humble one-man team. Today, the Letsema Group directly and indirectly employs more than 3 200 people.

Letsema is a Sotho word meaning people coming together to work for a common purpose. This is our underlying philosophy; at Letsema we are a community of diverse people who’ve come together with the shared purpose of using business as a catalyst for social change. Empowerment and diversity are inherent drivers in all our activities. It is this foundation that has given rise to us becoming one of South Africa’s leading long-term investment holding and business advisory companies.

Letsema focuses on business advisory and strategy services, and provides boutique intelligence to advise small, medium and large-scale businesses on strategy and economic development. Underpinning all we do is our purpose, business as a catalyst for social change.

We are Level 1 B-BBEE certified, with 100% black ownership. We believe part of our responsibility as a business in South Africa is creating a positive impact on the society in which we operate. Letsema’s vision is to empower people through leadership development, empower businesses through its consulting services and direct investments, and in turn create meaningful and sustainable socio-economic impact.

Services/Products we offer:

At Letsema our business is represented by three pillars: Consulting, Investments, and Foundation. Our Consulting pillar boasts a proud set of advisory services across Strategy, Economic & Societal Development, Digital, Financial Services and Supply Chain & Operations.

Our Investment pillar looks at investing in businesses that will form long-term partnerships with other businesses who share our values and also aim to make a positive impact on the society in which they operate. Our Investments have been into labour intensive industries so as to help ease the burden of unemployment in South Africa.

Through the Foundation pillar of our business we aim to further catalyst change in society through upliftment and support. Our foundation aims to further develop and empower leaders, and is committed to education and caring for vulnerable groups such as orphans and the aged.
