Gauteng Enterprise Propeller (GEP) is an agency of the Provincial Department of Economic, Environment, Agriculture and Rural Development in Gauteng. The main objective of the Agency is small business development. This includes financial and non-financial support to Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs) and cooperatives. It started operating in 2005 and its formation was informed by the province’s Growth and Development Strategy (GDS), which identified SMME development as one of the key levers to addressing the triple challenges of unemployment, poverty and inequality.

The strategic objectives of GEP are as follows: provision of efficient and timely support to SMMEs towards facilitating their development; provision of efficient and timely business development support to SMMEs towards increasing their professionalism and sustainability; contributing to the creation of an enabling environment for SMMEs' growth and sustainability; identifying business opportunities and enhancing business facilitation and business partnerships for and between SMMEs; facilitating increased SMME participation, including women, youth and people with disabilities in the province's economic growth sectors, and Gauteng Provincial Government’s priority socio-economic development projects; and efficient and effective management of GEP.

These objectives will be reached through the following: strengthening and improving debt management function; greater focus on resource mobilisation and partnerships; improving business development and after-care support; greater focus on township-based businesses in line with the Gauteng Provincial Government Township Revitalisation Strategy; tailor-made interventions to support informal businesses as the Gauteng Informal Business Uplifment Strategy (GIBUS); developing policies and processes to deal with security cover; and implementing a management information system.
