Soweto Bicycle Tour

Government has consistently identified the township economy as a key sector to improve South Africa’s growth prospects, yet for many corporates, this remains unknown territory. Lack of access to capital and expertise mean that many small enterprises fail to grow their footprint in the country. In this event, we hit Soweto on foot (bicycle!) to provide an on-the-ground view of business in Soweto! We will be joined on the tour by respected business people who have close links to Soweto, who will provide attendees with valuable insights and lessons from the township over an interactive lunch.
