Finding courage through innovation and agility


The national mentorship movement aims to mobilise 100 000 mentors to support 1 million SA entrepreneurs and others across the country

The movement aims to address South Africa’s massive unemployment problem and improve entrepreneurial health.

The movement noted the massive impact that mentorship can make in people’s lives – international research shows mentorship works by the power of two: compared to people without mentorship, people mentored are roughly double as likely to enroll in university, hold leadership positions, be involved in the community, increase the revenues and people employed in their businesses, and survive in their business longer than five years.

I had the honour and privilege to talk to an amazing group of people. Please find the presentation as well as captivating conversation that followed around finding courage through Agility and Innovation.
