The Digital Entrepreneur


Discover new ideas, innovations and be inspired to suc​​ceed

Running your own business is a dream for many people, but that happy scenario can become troubling when faced with a competitive landscape, shrinking consumer base and rising overheads. These are the issues many small to medium enterprises face, and we understand them and want to help.

This is why we have created The Digital Entrepreneur, an event geared to providing entrepreneurs like you with the tools and tips to succeed. Filled with influential speakers and captains of industry, The Digital Entrepreneur, unlike other expos, offers one-on-one Q&A sessions, innovative product demos and proven ideas that will allow your business to realise its full potential.

The event will be held on 27 October at The Forum, The Campus, Johannesburg and will only accommodate 400 people.
