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.

When you invest time and effort into someone else’s life, be it a business or a person, you get massive returns; you see the person grow, you see the company grow, you see them grow exponentially, you see them reaching their dreams, that’s what it’s about, Shanduka allows small companies to dream.
