THUD Tshwane: #1976reimagined: youth-led enterprising economic growth

June 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

As we upgrade ourselves from the politics of 1976 to the economics of 2019 during youth month in South Africa, #1976reimagined becomes extremely relevant as we continue to fight in the trenches against unemploymentinequality and poverty. These 3 major evils facing our country are coupled by personal challenges we all face: doubtdiscouragement and past failure. Young people are going through a lot in this economic depression.THUD constantly fights to be part of the solution in enabling trade for entrepreneurs with public & private sector procurement as key market access enablers.

This month THUD celebrates some of the City of Tshwane’s finest talent in the entrepreneurship arena, namely, Mogau Seshoene, Founder of The Lazy Makoti and Mokgadi Mabela, Founder and CEO of Native Nosi. They also engage Nontuthuko Shandu, CEO of Dandozest Restaurant situated at Freedom Park Heritage Site & Museum and Joe Human from Creative Mind Space. Lethabo Mokoena, Founder and CEO of Walk Fresh will moderate the session.

Entrepreneurs are in search of 3 things right now and THUD aims to provide some of the answers on 27 June 2019: 

  1. Market Access: where to look (demand); how to position yourself (strategy); when to look (timing)
  2. Working Capital: how to fund my projects; how to access seed capital; what to do to qualify
  3. Capacity Development: How to grow your operation; When to grow; Why compliance is a key enabler of trade access
