Product Description

Doing Business with Purpose is a South African bestseller available in English and Mandarin. Its author, Francois van Niekerk, has a South African lineage going back to the year 1671 and is acknowledged by Forbes as one of continental Africa’s leading philanthropists. Along with several other businesses, he founded Mergon and co-founded Atterbury, both becoming multinationals and both operating charitable Foundations.

In Doing Business with Purpose: Beyond Success to Significance, Francois draws from decades of life experience and shares lessons on inviting God into your business, offering practical guidance and valuable reflections.

His remarkable career testifies to God’s ability to turn human failure into success on a global scale. After 17 years in corporate life, Francois faced insolvency a mere nine months into his first start up, and turned to God in desperation. After a miraculous intervention, Francois followed through on a vow he made in haste, by initially transferring 30% shareholding to a registered trust with the Kingdom as the sole beneficiary. In time this shareholding increased to 70%.

Since 1980, Mergon has grown from a cash strapped startup into an international investment company that, through its Foundation, has distributed over R1 billion (over $50 mil) to impactful ministries serving communities and nations across Africa and the Middle East. Through Ziwani, Mergon also equips and connects African business leaders to effectively integrate their faith and work, creating positive impact in the marketplace.

Honest, personal and rich in real life illustration, Doing Business with Purpose is an extraordinary account of one man’s faith, obedience and testament to what is possible when we choose to take God at His word.
