The Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) movement is a racially selective programme launched by the South African government to redress the inequalities of apartheid by giving certain previously disadvantaged groups of South African citizens economic privileges previously not available to them.
For Fred Robertson, this movement presented the opportunity to build one of the biggest BEE companies in South Africa to be listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, Brimstone. In order to build this legacy, the billionaire first had to overcome insurmountable obstacles.
According to him,
“Its not how many times you fall on your face, its how many times you pick yourself up after you fall”.
