BEATMagazineSA in conjunction with Nedbank launched a Meet & Mingle Workshop on the 25th of September 2015. The event took place at Beacon Bay Palm Square and was attended about 25 young entrepreneurs. It was directed by Quanita Pikini. The workshop was hosted for young entrepreneurs in the Eastern Cape and was called #nedbankyouthinbusinessworkshop.

Amongst the speakers was Mark Currin from Nedbank, Simphiwe ‘Smash’ Mashexa (co-founder of BEATMagazineSA) and Mkhululi “Costa” Vena (Relationships Manager at MPD Group).

The idea behind this workshop was to empower young people in business with necessary tips needed when running a business and get these entrepreneurs to network with one another and build relationships. The three speakers armoured these young entrepreneurs with words of wisdom. “Be motivated by providing the service, what you give to someone should be at sufficient standard”, Vena advised.

It is vividly clear that in business as well, people need to realise their strengths and not waste time doing things they’re not good at as Mashexa also emphasised that people should ‘understand their lane and invest in it’.

Currin also took the stage and presented a number of tips to the audience, he outlined reasons why businesses fail (see article ‘why businesses fail’).

“When you choose a business partner, select them based on the motive they want to be in the business for”, Currin said in closing.
