I spent quality time last night in a room full of entrepreneurs. A long-time friend who has created and guided what are now big businesses, invests around half his assets into private companies run and owned by people he believes in. He gathered them together for a year-end party, with me as the late night entertainment.
As he’s a good friend, and as they are people who know the subject really well, I did a lot of work preparing this speech. The text is republished below – sharing from history and my own life, to provide thoughts and guidance on why I really believe SA is one of the very best places right now to be an entrepreneur.
Not for reasons you might imagine. – Alec Hogg
