This study investigates the impact, the following funding streams; personal funds, Venture capital, Government funding and Bank loans exert on job creation in small businesses in Gauteng.

Results-From the research findings, the researcher should have a clearer picture of how these funding streams impact the growth of the businesses in terms of job creation.,/p>
