Future Females: Getting started – turning your idea into a business


Date: 18/04/2018
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Info

Gandhi said: “The future depends on what you do today”. We are often full of ideas, inspiration flows over and you need a notepad 2am in the morning to write down everything – But we are so scared of not knowing what to do to turn that idea into a business that we end up doing nothing!! Can I get a “Ya!” (or is it just us)?
We want to change that! That’s why we invite you and two expert startup founders to share their stories, their successes and failures, what worked, what they would tell their younger selves, what is important and what you don’t need to sweat.

This event has two amazing speakers coming to share their insights and give you actionable tips on how to get started (we are only announcing these two amazing women publically later this week – so you’re first to know!).

Speaker 1: Antoinette Murphy, Founder of 88 Business Collective
Antoinette started her entrepreneurial journey in 2004 after leaving McKinsey and Company with the aim to positively influence how business is done in Africa. She started her first business, Afrofusion Advertising in her mother’s lounge with R200, a laptop and a pocket full of dreams and hopes for this beautiful continent. Over the past twelve years, she gained extensive experience in accessing new markets by taking her business to Uganda, Kenya and servicing clients in Nigeria. She is passionate about the entrepreneurial space across the continent and shares her expertise by mentoring emerging entrepreneurs. She launched the88 Business Collective in 2016 and focuses on accelerating women owned businesses from marginalized communities utilizing her Growth Through Collaboration methodology.

Speaker 2: Heike le Cordeur or Fleur le Cordeur
Heike le Cordeur, a former IT specialist with a longing to create with her hands, started out small and has since grown her brand to become the renowned Fleur le Cordeur floristry studio in Paarl. Heike will be sharing her story, including how she knew when to go all in on her business, her wins and losses from the early days, and giving you the advice she wished she was given on day 1!
