About this event

COVID-19 has disrupted our usual way of life and doing business and has caused devastating impact. This crisis calls for businesses to respond quickly to either solve the newly created problems or prepare us for the world post-pandemic. The crisis has also created a window of opportunity to solve systemic problems that have had no urgency for resolution.

Join this online event for entrepreneurs, visionaries, investors and problem solvers who are focusing on creating the world of our future. Listen to investors and experts share how we can respond and pivot our businesses. Hear examples of how entrepreneurs across Africa have pivoted their businesses during the crisis and even managed to raise investment. During this event Enygma Ventures will share their newly launched R20 million campaign to fund innovative startups across Africa who have solutions or ideas for our new future.

Our special guest is Silicon Valley investor and author Steve Blank. He's the author of The Startup Owner's Manual. Steve was part of/or founded eight venture-backed companies. Four of his eight startup companies went public. He has taught entrepreneurship to both undergraduate and graduate students at U.C. Berkeley, Stanford University and the Columbia University/Berkeley Joint Executive MBA program.
