Getting access to funding is one of the biggest challenges many entrepreneurs in South Africa are faced with.
The Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship will be running a two day event called "do-ference", on 10 and 11 September, on the ways entrepreneurs can access funding.
The Bertha Centre is the first academic centre in Africa dedicated to advancing social innovation and entrepreneurship.
