The township economy is thriving. Or is it?

There have been many initiatives, both public and private-sector led, to develop township-based entrepreneurs. Many such entrepreneurs, however, continue to struggle to access the resources and skills needed to launch and grow their businesses.

To commemorate ‘Youth Month’, Wits Business School is pleased to invite you to a panel discussion on the township economy with four inspirational and experienced entrepreneurs:   

  • Lwanga Cengimbo - founder of Lwanga Productions and Hustlepreneur
  • Tiisetso Maloma - entrepreneur, researcher, publisher and author of The Anxious Entrepreneur and Township Biz Fastrack
  • Bulelani Balabala - founder of Township Entrepreneurs Alliance (TEA) and CEO of IAF brands, a township-based award winning branding and print manufacturing company 
  • Leah Manenzhe – acting CEO of the Gauteng Enterprise Propeller (GEP)

The conversation will be facilitated by Pearl Maphumulo - Managing Director of The Business Development Agency, and recently named as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in South Africa by Ghanaian’s Avance Media.
