About this event

May is Startup Grind Female Leaders Month where we will host over 150 women on stages globally. In Cape Town we are proud to host a female leader in fishing Nicolette de Freitas.

Nicolette de Freitas is the CEO and co-founder of Fish4Africa, a fresh fish and seafood supplier in Western Cape. Fish4Africa supplies supermarket chains such as Spar and PicknPay and their own franchise outlets.

Fish4Africa was founderd with 2 employees and now has over 120 staff and operates its own fleet of vessels. Nicolette raised funding and support from Anglo-American, Small Business Development Agency and Pick n Pay.
