Suits & Sneakers – Ignite 2019

Suits & Sneakers – Ignite 2019

Suits & Sneakers hosts a monthly event in Gauteng with a different theme each time round. In March, our focus shifts toward entrepreneurship. SMEs are the lifeblood of the South African economy and the only real solution to lowering the high levels on unemployment in South Africa. With this in mind, we thought we would put an event together where we gather a group of experienced entrepreneurs and extract the many lessons that they have learned along their journey.

Regardless of whether you are an entrepreneur or have a job, you want to attend this event to gain vital insights into the mind of an entrepreneur! There are so many skills you learn as an entrepreneur that is transferrable across every industry and/or business sector including creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving.
