Township entrepreneurs are not as exposed to urban entrepreneurs. Through the mentorship programme we aim guide,coach, advise and capacitate them in their businesses. Mentors will include expert mentors, MBA students as well as retired industry experts.
“The significant participation and meaningful inclusion of the people of the township into mainstream economy of Gauteng through their own township enterprises that are supported by the government and big business will be one of the key game changers…The townships must be self sufficient and vibrant economic centres.”

What others say about us
“We need more institutions like eKasi Entrepreneurs in working with the state and different government departments to deliver the mandate of developing youth entrepreneurs”
“More and more will be expected from eKasi Entrepreneurs as a movement, and it should not be in Cape Town… it should go to other places in South Africa to impact more young people”
