Keen to discover enlightening behind-the-scenes perspectives from our recent pitch off at the WomHub Founder Showcase? This livestream recording is for you! Watch the video below where our project manager Bathandile Mthombeni interviewed pitch off winner Rheineth Modiselle and People’s Choice Award Winner Yolanda Mbanguzi. These amazing ladies vulnerably shared sincere advice for their fellow founders, encouraging them not to fear failure and to have the resilience to fail forward, while being open to welcoming collaboration and support from others, starting with our wonderful WomHub community.
The WomHub Founder Showcase, held on 12 May 2022 at our Hub in Rivonia, Johannesburg, profiled founders who have been working on transforming their businesses over the last 10 months through our Economic Growth Accelerator, funded by the South African Future Trust, and our Circular Economy Incubator, funded by the Embassy of Finland in South Africa. Leading up to this event, 50 of these founders had the opportunity to submit pitch videos, which were pre-judged to select the top 25 entrants, who participated in a virtual Refiner’s Fire pitch off event. The top 10 founders from there, plus a Wild Card entry and the People’s Choice Award Winner then pitched live at the WomHub Founder Showcase.
Take a look to discover what Rheineth and Yolanda had to say about their experiences:
You're welcome to read our previous blog post to find out more about this inaugural event, which was attended by a phenomenal group of people, including WomHub co-founders, partners, judges, female founders, investors, international dignitaries and members from the private sector to support women entrepreneurs with access and entry into global and local supply chains. At WomHub, we believe in the power of bringing women together to help them seed, incubate and scale their businesses, working together to unlock a global billion-dollar market opportunity. Because when women come together, magic happens.
You’ll get a taste of this when you watch the replay above and witness the fabulous interaction in the comments from Rheineth and Yolanda’s fellow female founders and online followers, who participated in real time as the livestream was broadcast simultaneously to our WomHub Facebook page, LinkedIn profile and YouTube channel.
