Pathways to funding for (social) entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship are but some of the keys to growth and employment opportunities in our country. At the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship’s (a specialised Centre at UCT’s Graduate School of Business) annual Pathways to Funding Do-ference entrepreneurs will get a better understanding of how to raise funding directly from investors and peers who have walked the journey before them.

The Do-ference is designed to help early-stage entrepreneurs access the tools and connections they need.

It brings together entrepreneurs, start-ups, financiers and legal experts from across the South African entrepreneurship ecosystem - and is taking place in Cape Town this weekend.

We thought let's host this two day access to finance Master Class which is a teaser of all the things you need to know.
