Youth in Business Breakfast Seminar
Student Dynamics in partnership with the UKZN Howard College SRC hosted a business breakfast seminar with the objectives of availing funding options and business growth opportunities to student and aspiring youth entrepreneurs.
The seminar was attended by various stakeholders such as the Department of Social Development, Standard Bank, Progressive Youth Business (PYB), Durban Chamber of Commerce, Kaizen Applications, Mam Gugu Institute for Financial Education (MGIFE), and Sanele Gamede (author).
The students engaged with what was presented to them, and seemed motivated to start or to professionalise their businesses. Guest Speaker Thanduxolo Sabelo (former UKZN Central SRC President) and provincial ANCYL secretary outlined the demand of young people in the business sector, sharing information on institutions such as the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) and Ithala Development Finance Corporation. The event was a success and both organising parties committed to assist student entrepreneurs in their future endeavors.
