TCJ Autobody is a 100% black-woman-owned company specialising in auto body repair in a typically male-dominated industry. TCJ faced some serious challenges to keep their business profitable and scale it for future growth. They applied to be part of an Edge Growth managed ESD Programme in 2019.
One-on-one mentorship, provided by Edge Growth, took the business back to basics by first identifying the challenges and then helping improve communications, growing the client base, imparting financial knowledge, restructuring systems and assisting with realignment of inventory management processes. Funding from an Edge Growth managed fund assisted with working capital and purchase of new equipment.
