Networking event for business women

Live face-to-face business networking  with other entrepreneurs is an essential, and fun, part of developing a small business. Not only can business networking help you grow your customer base and generate referrals, but it can also provide numerous opportunities for learning, development and growth.

The Hook Up Dinner, founded by Selebogo Molefe, aka DrLifeSgud, and produced in collaboration with 6 startups, brings together a variety of small business owners from a myriad of different industries all for the purpose of connecting, engaging and contributing.  The motivational speakers range from an early business accelerator to a serial entrepreneur.

The concept, which takes on a dynamic, yet relaxed and informal dinner format, was brought to life in 2012 and has since evolved into a market place where organisations find entrepreneurs with whom to partner in their economic empowerment programmes.

The first Friday of the month, startups from across South Africa and Africa gather at The Hookup Dinner to network and explore collaborative opportunities.

This is a SAFE place for you as a business woman to test your business ideas! Also make sure you have your business cards ready.
