 “From this experience I learnt that you’re never too young to start a business. This initiative taught me the importance of interacting with my peers not only in South Africa but also the rest of the continent. I made new friends and had the opportunity to interact with young people from other countries I wouldn’t generally meet. We also met with industry experts and young entrepreneurs we could relate to.”
