Win a free ticket to the Tshwane Entrepreneurship Week #TNEW

I was invited to speak at the Tshwane Entrepreneurship Week, which happens from 27 to 31 August 2012. And of course, I wanted to spread the love.


Here’s the deal, I have one ticket to give away here and another one over at WordStart. There’ll be one more spot ticket given away on Twitter. Before we go any further, I’ll announce the winner on Tuesday 14 August. The tickets are valued at R750, per day.

If you win this one, you get to pick a day from Monday to Friday. The only day that’s excluded is Wednesday, 29 August.

The conference has an awesome line-up of speakers.

Here are some of the people you’ll hear from:

On Monday (27 August 2012)

Douglas Kruger, an author and four time Southern African Public Speaking Champion

Magdalene Moonsamy, COO of the NYDA (National Youth Development Agency)

Tuesday (28 August 2012)

Olga Meshoe, Senior Consultant at Transcend Corporate Advisors. She was also the youngest and only black chairperson of a subcommittee of the South African Securitisation Forum.

And, of course I also speak on Friday. The talk is about how some of the world’s most successful, some small and unknown, startups defied the rules to make it big.

How to score a ticket:

  1.  Tell me why you, or someone you nominate deserves the ticket – as a comment below.
  2.  Share this post on Twitter and add a by @Mongezi just so I pick it up.
  3. If you nominate yourself, ask a friend to come post a comment supporting your self nomination.
  4. As part of your comment, also tell me which day you’d like to check out. The details and full conference are here.
  5. Check back on 14 August to see if you’ve won.

      Great to know you’ll be speaking at the conference. I’d like to nominate my dad, Joseph Lerumo, he too is an entrepreneur and is into waste and recycling. I believe winning a ticket would be great for him to get to learn new things, about business as well as share in compelling conversations with people who are in the same industry, thus inspiring his knowledge.

      He loves attending business conferences and I’d like to afford him this opportunity. He recently read about you in this months Destiny Man magazine, and loved that you’ll be speaking too on Friday, so I think Friday will be perfect for the both of you to meet too hahaha.

      I really hope my dearest dad gets to win this awesome price, he would be delighted and excited.

      Keep up the great work Mongezi. The world is yours for the taking.

    • I personally have a great edge when it comes to my interest in entrepreneurship. A young man with big dreams with the idea of using entrepreneurship as my starting point. This event would benfit me greatly as I have always indulged in litereature such as the Entrepreneur magazine from as early as I remember even now at 20 Years of age.

    • I was able to twist some arms, even though Zimangazenkosi did not send the Tweet as mentioned in the post.
      Be that as it may, both Refiloe and Zimangazenkosi get a free ticket.

    • Great initiative indeed. Looks like I just missed an opportunity to get a ticket to this fantastic event. Sad, that I only got to see it today. I am an entrepreneur myself and it is a great event not to miss. Just trying my luck.

    • Stanley, we have already given away the tickets. But the good news is, we have one more give away on later this week.
      Look out for the post.
