THE Robin Hood Foundation are taking giving to a new level by hosting a free, world-class entrepreneurial conference for aspirant and existing entrepreneurs at City Hill Church, Inanda Road, Hillcrest on July 23 and July 24.

The Entrepreneurs 4 Africa Conference aims to equip and inspire more than 1 000 aspirant and existing entrepreneurs with knowledge, skills and advice at a jam-packed two-day event.

“The aim of this conference is to encourage South Africans to use whatever they have in their heads, hearts and hands to start a business.

“We want the delegates to leave the conference having been exposed to many business opportunities, to have explored options that are open to them, and understanding that they have the power to create their own future and to feel optimistic going forward,” explains Founder of The Robin Hood Foundation Cindy Norcott.

Top-class speakers, trainers, business leaders and successful entrepreneurs are donating their time in order to offer a life-changing experience.

This free conference will cover the following: entrepreneurship and business idea generation, communication skills, customer service, marketing, networking and sales skills, and much more.

“We have a group of successful business leaders lined up to share their skills and advice with delegates, to expose them to some great business minds, ideas and networks that they would not otherwise have access to, enabling delegates to go forward with their business ventures or ideas and put them into action and start or grow their businesses,” adds Norcott.

On day two of the conference, a business exhibition is planned to bring the delegates entrepreneurial opportunities, business knowledge and products and services that will be of benefit to their growth and success.


• Men and women aged 16 and older may apply.

• Successful applicants must commit to the two day seminar (July 23 and July 24).

• 100% attendance is required.

• According to BBBEE legislation, a minimum of 76% of the delegates will be black South African citizens.

• Delegates will be given manuals and refreshments.

Please note that no transport or accommodation will be provided.

“We believe that many people in South Africa would make successful entrepreneurs if they had more knowledge, skills, a bigger network and access to more opportunities.

“We are confident that this event will inspire delegates to run successful businesses which can have a ripple effect in poor communities and contribute towards the growth of the South African economy as a whole,” concludes Cindy.
