Challenges facing young female SA entrepreneurs
All of the mentors at Mashauri are really pleased that we have a relatively high proportion of female entrepreneurs on the programme – and frankly are proud of their commitment and vision. We thought therefore that it would be interesting for everyone (male and female) to have a glimpse into the challenges faced by 4 of the top female entrepreneurs in SA.
Questions to consider:
- Do you think it is tougher being a female entrepreneur than a male entrepreneur?
- Are there ways in which you could convert any of these challenges into strengths or turn them into opportunities?
Special bonus (not mandatory).
While running, I tend to listen to podcasts and came across one today that I am posting here for two reasons:
- It is another great story of a woman entrepreneur overcoming all odds and becoming phenomenaly sucessful.
- It made me think of your fellow student: Mapula – and thought she at last might get inspired by this woman whose business model should inform her (Mapula’s) own business venture.
