Investec CSI's Young Entrepreneurs Programme
A global programme
Our young entrepreneurs’ platform exposes South African entrepreneurs to global business thinking. This year's trips include Israel, Berlin, Singapore and Helsinki.
Every year Investec, in partnership with En-novate, sends a group of young entrepreneurs from various sectors to specifically selected countries in order to gain global exposure.
Each itinerary provides them with opportunities to network and to engage with venture capitalists, funders and captains of industry.
The aim is for them to return home not only stimulated and inspired, but also with a list of potential partners, funders and markets for their product or service.
