Meet Fred Roed, founder of 'Heavy Chef' (SA’s most popular monthly tech event)
Heavy Chef is the most popular monthly leadership and tech event in South Africa.
The name "Heavy Chef" comes from the saying "never trust a skinny chef" and aims to celebrate the "people that eat their own food".
Roed is the author of “The Heavy Chef Guide to Starting a Business in South Africa”.
He co-founded the “Heavy Chef Foundation”, aimed at providing funding for high potential emerging entrepreneurs.
I’m cheaper and better looking than Malcolm Gladwell, Yuval Harari and Gary V. I can also MC like a pro, juggle like a circus clown, sing like an angel and dance like John Travolta. Just kidding. I can’t juggle.Fred Roed, CEO - Heavy Chef
