If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that consistent change is the order of the day and agility and adaptability are must-have tools for success. Have you mastered these skills? If you’re a woman with aspirations of becoming an entrepreneur, then check out AMAZI’s brand new Virtual Knowledge Hub.
It’s an online learning platform written by South African female entrepreneurs that will encourage you and help you believe in yourself. The idea is that the Hub provides insights and valuable introspection through bite-size information and practical exercises in short, affordable modules. After taking these courses, you should have the practical skills and be fully prepared emotionally and mentally to move forward with your ambitions.
For women of colour, by those in the know
The Hub isn’t bound to any industry, but it was built around the experiences of the founders, who work in the beauty industry.
“We have struggled with the hindrances women of colour face trying to build businesses in an economy that has not changed its infrastructure to advocate for our inclusion. We know the insights from this journey are important and we have used our collective learnings to tailor an offering which we hope women of colour will find relatable, impactful and supportive. True to our purpose to create spaces where women thrive, we’re business creators who believe that it’s our responsibility to equally be activists that support the birth of more women-owned enterprises,” says Hub co-creator Divya Vasant, CEO of AMAZI.
Fellow Hub co-creator Lisa Mgcotyelwa, COO of AMAZI, added: “While we impart actual skills required to lead in business, we also offer insightful takes on personal introspection which helps build confidence. This is a non-negotiable necessity for leadership in business."

AMAZI is a group of companies with the purpose to innovate opportunities, platforms and models that champion the economic inclusion of women. The group began that journey by launching a holistic skills development and employment creation programme that trained young, unemployed women to become beauty professionals and introduced them to the world of work through a 12-month learnership at our AMAZI stores. As COVID-19 reshapes the format of how earning opportunities will be created, AMAZI is evolving its model to become an incubator supporting women to become self-sufficient.
