Chesney Bradshaw, entrepreneur and trainer in entrepreneurial innovation and creativity, has established the popular blog Ideaaccelerator.co.za to help people who want to be more creative and start something of their own.

His first-hand hardships and learning from the streets growing up in Kalk Bay, Cape Town, fueled his concern about high job losses and a shrinking economy with fewer opportunities for people of any age. Entrepreneurship is an option for many but for those who may never had considered entrepreneurship a whole new approach is required.

Chesney established Ideaaccelerator.co.za in 2010 drawing on his many years experience in business and entrepreneurship. Since then the blog site has attracted more than more 22,000 visitors and has assisted many people.

The website’s most popular blog posts are:

Do you have an idea for a small manufacturing business?
Finding business ideas for special needs children
Who else wants to generate ideas for income opportunities from home in a lousy economy?
Turn your passion into profit but look before you leap
The secrets of how a mom turned an old smoker into a cash machine
The biggest start-up mistake. Believing creativity is enough

From the huge interest in the blog, Chesney published the book, “Breakthrough ideas: How to Produce Ideas for Profit in your Life and Business”, an imprint from Bell & Cray Publishing, which is still in print.

Chesney continues to publish blog posts and other useful resources for people who want to generate ideas for profit. The blog offers tools and resources for people who want to prepare themselves for entrepreneurship.
