Comparative analysis with nations such as South Korea and China further emphasizes South Africa’s position on the innovation spectrum. While its rate of informal innovation may not surpass these global leaders, it surpasses them, indicating a substantial reservoir of untapped talent and creativity.

These findings highlight the need for continued support and investment in fostering innovation within South Africa. By nurturing grassroots innovators and providing them with the necessary resources and opportunities, the country can harness its immense potential for economic and social development.
