About this event

We make a lot of assumptions about how doing business is different Eswatini. Whilst some are founded on reality, the majority of them are legends passed from struggling entrepreneur to struggling entrepreneur.

With our first event, we're hosting a founder who started a Wi-Fi business when there was still only ADSL in the country. To date, TouchIT supplies hundreds of homes, institutions, and businesses with the internet. The company employs over 24 people, with 60% of them female.

Join us to learn about how the business began, how it grows, and how Vector deals with the unique challenges presented by the local environment.
