Thank you to everyone who came out to attend and another huge thank you to our sponsor KGA Life Limited, Speakers, Partners, Delegates – without all of you, this event would just not have been possible.
In 2017, Silulo Ulutho Foundation launched the first installment of Entrepreneurship Business Network Breakfast series , to create a discussion and a platform which supports an enabling environment for township aspiring start-ups to grow as successful entrepreneurs, to be economically and socially empowered, and to learn from various experiences and challenges across borders.
Outstanding entrepreneurs from various industries candidly shared words, wisdom and stories of the experiences they have undergone in their professional and entrepreneurial journeys, the hard won lessons and the truth about the business world that not many people will tell you. Our young and emerging entrepreneurs who massively attended were highly inspired and motivated. The speakers included Professor Michael Morris from Entrepreneurship and Empowerment South Africa, Neil Pursey of Webgrowth Academy , Darlene Menzies of SMeasy , Luvuyo Rani founder of Silulo Ulutho Foundation, Buchule Sibaca from SMTAX , Tanya Mtthews and Luyanda Ndudula of Daisy Solutions.
Professor Michael Morris (on the picture) made it clear that here is no future of South Africa without Entrepreneurship and that entrepreneurs are not born, they are made. “Entrepreneurship is a process, if you see it as a process it, can be broken into steps, it can be managed, and anyone can learn it and without “discipline” you will fail as an entrepreneur” he says.
In his speech he mentioned that there are 6 critical things that entrepreneurs were overlooking.
A critical reflection on what is needed to accelerate sustainable development led to the joint agreement that all entrepreneurs should really put their money where their mouths are and start investing in each other and be proactive in promoting the culture of mentorship and entrepreneurship to boost the township economy and alleviate poverty.
To make the sessions more effective with programmes that have a direct effective approach to issues faced by aspiring entrepreneurs and more hands-on than theory, we are introducing the exhibition area which is made up of high quality, outstanding and impactful businesses who have made great strides in their respected fields.
Join us on the 14th of July 2017 at the Komani Town Hall, Queenstown for a day of entrepreneurship empowerment, capacity development and dialogue on the opportunities, gaps and solutions for enhancing economic transformation and development agendas that put entrepreneurship at the centre of South Africa’s economic growth and development.
You can participate in this event as a Sponsor, Partner, Speaker, Exhibitor, Delegate or Visitor.
