Bongani was an entrepreneur from as young as 16 who, like many other successful people, also first failed in business – before he dusted himself off, picked up the pieces and started all over again. His own story, “From Dung to Design” also featured in Financial Mail in June 2015. He is convinced though that his struggles could have been alleviated significantly if he had a mentor.
“Due to the nature of their businesses, small business owners pretty much operate in isolation. They have to make decisions on their own and often only learn by trial and error. Plus the leaders who achieved in the corporate arena – mostly do not understand the specific challenges that SMMEs are faced with,” explains Bongani.
Today, Bongani is passionate about sharing the lessons he learned with other SMMEs as they are the engine of our country’s economic growth. And he believes that the lessons he personally learned could be invaluable to other entrepreneurs who are also fighting for survival in the business jungle. To this end, Bongani has initiated the roll out of a new business mentorship programme (NPO) in 2016. The initiative will be named “Each One Teach One” that that will offer mentorship to small business owners by those who are more seasoned and streetwise in business based on experience.
Although Lesedi Radebe is a very personable, easy-going person, he’s also a hard-working and determined young man. What he lacks in years, he makes up in passion for all things creative.

His insight, maturity and talent secured him his first job at BWD, and within only one year, he was promoted to Senior Designer.
