Pitching it right

Pitching it rightEndeavor South Africa’s selection panel is made up of industry experts, leading executives, academics and entrepreneurs. Their role is to meet with prospective entrepreneurs who are keen to become part of the Endeavor process in order for them to take their business to the next level. For those who make it through the selection process, they have the opportunity to catapult the business into the international arena, with access to broader international networks.

Mobilebanking41317_img2Mobile banking allows its users to conduct financial transactions through mobile devices such as mobile phones and tablets. It is a service offered by banks and other financial institutions that allows users to obtain account balances, pay bills and transfer funds on their mobiles. However, mobile banking is different from mobile payment. Indeed, the latter is a service that allows users to pay for a product or service using a mobile device. Paying for purchases doesn’t require having a bank account. It is more often added to the phone bill or paid by cash to specific agents.

Four groups of students from Georgetown University in the United States, were tasked to collaborate and work with entrepreneurs from Endeavor South Africa, as part of their MBA curriculum. The students graced the shores of South Africa in early March to present their findings and recommendations to Prince Skosana CEO and Founder of Matayo Biofuels, Trevor Wolfe CEO and co-Founder of delvv.io, Cynthia Mkhombo, Founder of Masana Hygiene Services and Natalie Killassy, Founder of Stitch Wise.

The need to establish a database of every top-performing privately-held company for the sake of ease of access and choice in the entrepreneurial ecosystem has never been more important than it is right now. Africa is experiencing a surge in entrepreneurial endeavours, and this is the perfect time to let entrepreneurs know who they can turn to further scale their innovative companies.

Endeavor is dedicated to supporting our Founders to realise their entrepreneurial vision. We pride ourselves in leading a global entrepreneurial movement by supporting our community of entrepreneurs as they scale their businesses. Endeavor does this through access to markets (global network), access to talent (mentors, academic programmes, growth programmes, graduates etc.) and access to capital (investors).

An authentic spirit to serve

An authentic spirit to serveEarly in 2000, I started working on a project that would change the course of my life. It was called HelpOut!, and it was a learning programme for Economic and Management Sciences for grade 4 learners. It’s real purpose, though, was to get kids to think and act like entrepreneurs.
