Venue: Investec Auditorium, Wits Business School, 2 St David's Place, Parktown

A lot of resources are being invested to nurture entrepreneurship in this country, by government and the private sector, and there are many initiatives in place to support and develop entrepreneurs. However, are these programmes really creating the desired growth or having the intended impact? Are the activities and funds coordinated for the maximum return, or are there pockets of excellence and lots of duplication? What do entrepreneurs really need to succeed - according to entrepreneurs themselves?
Z.A. Zen Consulting interviewed 50 people, including 38 entrepreneurs, in one-on-one discussions in Johannesburg over four months. The result is the 2016 Entrepreneurship Research Study: Voices of Entrepreneurs in Johannesburg – the first of its kind.
Please join us for a panel discussion on the findings and recommendations of the Study, as well as on the challenges facing entrepreneurs in Johannesburg - and more importantly, the opportunities and solutions.
Our keynote speaker is Tamiko Sher, founder and CEO of Z.A. Zen Consulting, a strategic virtual consulting company which specialises in entrepreneurship, innovation, knowledge management and strategy.  She will be joined by our panellists:

  • Adelaide Fyffe: Consultant, Institutional Coach and Social Entrepreneur
  • Kgomotso Motshidi: Strategist and Project Manager
  • Dr Jabulile Galawe: Lecturer in Entrepreneurship at WBS

We look forward to welcoming you!
Booking is essential.
