Working at The Innovation Hub in Pretoria this afternoon.
I really enjoyed mentoring at the Startup Weekend in Cape Town this weekend.
I was especially impressed by the students (all in their late teens) who attended from the African Leadership Academy in Johannesburg. These youngsters showed great aptitude, were exceptionally keen, and presented great work.

The latest graduates of my Idea Workshop!
(Run this month at the Barn as part of Cape Town Entrepreneurship Week)
I’m looking forward to some exciting events - and running the next Idea Workshop - on the horizon
My Idea Workshop is being run as part of CT Entrepreneurship Week AND as a feeder event for the Startup Weekend after it (see below). It will be on the 14-15th of November (Wed-Thur) at the new Barn. This is an intensive workshop that I run in Cape Town and Pretoria to help entrepreneurs discover and develop a brilliant idea for a new venture. Book here
Cape Town Entrepreneurship Week
I will be exhibiting with the Barn at this year’s Cape Town Youth Entrepreneurship Conference and Expo on 9th & 10th November. Running alongside the Youth Entrepreneurship conference, this exciting expo will be laid out like a giant, interactive map of Cape Town’s business support environment and is a great opportunity to meet and engage with a wide range of small business support organisations (funding, red tape issues, business ideas, etc) and meet other entrepreneurs.

I will be helping as a mentor again at the Startup Weekend on 16-18 November in Cape Town. This is a great event for aspirant entrepreneurs to pitch, refine and network for a new venture. More details here
