Sompisi IT Solutions, a Cape Town-based, black-owned IT start-up, is set to host its Business Collab Breakfast at Lookout Hill, Khayelitsha, on the 7th of October 2016. The event will provide a platform for entrepreneurs to network, promote their businesses and get access to the support needed to get their basic IT infrastructure off the ground.
Wendy Mbele, Managing Director of Sompisi IT Solutions comments, “Hosting the Business Collab Breakfast is an important initiative for us, because it creates the space for up-and-coming entrepreneurs to get together, share ideas and maybe even collaborate on their projects. Being an entrepreneur can sometimes have its isolating moments and this is our way of helping the future movers and shakers of our beautiful city to get exposure and learn more about the nitty gritty of running a business.”
Speaking from experience, Mbele grew up in Khayelitsha and had little to no exposure to basic IT skills required for functioning in a tertiary education system or work environment, but thanks to perseverance and hard work, she now spearheads a successful IT start-up that has South Africa’s youth at heart. “We at Sompisi IT Solutions wish to lend a hand to entrepreneurs who may not have the networking opportunities and IT infrastructure essential for starting and running a successful business,” says Mbele, “Which is why alongside the networking breakfast, we are offering a very affordable IT support package that includes the opportunity for delegates to profile their company and enjoy the benefits of a one month email and domain subscription for their business.”
“In our current climate, it’s more important than ever that those with entrepreneurial drive are well prepared to put their talents – and others’ – to good use,” says Mbele, concluding, “The Sompisi IT Solutions Business Collab Breakfast is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to go from zero to connected in a short space of time. This could be a golden moment for many a business owner; everyone is welcome.”
Come get your game face on with Sompisi IT Solutions’ Business Collab Breakfast, where you get to network like it’s hot, profile your business and get hooked up with a one-month email and domain subscription for your business. Networking breakfast is R150 per person and the Sompisi Package (including business profile, one-month email and domain subscription) is an additional R200 per person.
