One of main objectives when we founded the Jumpstart initiative earlier this year was to “connect startup ICT entrepreneurs to mentors that can guide them on building successful businesses.” We are therefore happy to announce that next week, we’re will host an event to that realises that specific objective of mentorship.
On the evening of Thursday, 6 December 2012, we will have 4 entrepreneurs and technical executives from some of the largest companies locally as panellists in a discussion on tech entrepreneurship challenges faced locally and strategies to overcome them.
The event is in a moderated discussion format so attendees get to participate by asking questions and contribution their views. This ZOL sponsored discussion follows from the Jumpstart Challenge and BarCamp held in September this year. As such some of the judges from challenge are the panellists. The following:
- David Behr – Founder and CEO of ZOL, Executive Director at Liquid Telecom
- Leon de Fleuriot – Chief Commercial Officer – Products and Services at Econet Wireless Zimbabwe
- Bester Zambuko – Founder and Group CEO of Adrenalin Advertising & Design
- Matthew Masiyazi – Broadband and mCommerce at Econet Wireless Zimbabwe
Their entrepreneurship and experience in the local economy give these panellists unique perspectives on the developments in the tech startup ecosystem.
