The energy and enthusiasm of our mentors is an invaluable part of the Shanduka Black Umbrellas programme. Their dedication and generosity in sharing their knowledge and skills is fundamental to the development of emerging black businesses and to the economic prosperity of South Africa.

Meet these special people who contribute their value every day.

What makes me feel positive about black business, is that I think in the early stages it was really centered around BEE, and preferential procurement, but what I see now, there’s a shift and a change in the type of entrepreneur that’s actually surfacing, so you’re getting the intellectual ones now; the guys who know the full business model, and they’re actually coming through with innovation, it’s not the same thing repackaged all over and over again, so that’s an exciting space – innovation, intellect, creativity and I can’t wait to see what’s coming out.
