10 Top Female Business Leaders




The past few years have seen a rise in the number of women-owned businesses in Africa. Be it in IT, oil, mining, or in the aviation sector, female entrepreneurs are breaking gender stereotypes and showing that what a man can do, a woman can also do, if not better. Bold and fearlessly ambitious, these are some of the female business leaders who shape the future of the continent and inspire not only countless other women, but also anyone who dares to dream.

Forbes Africa #30Under30 List: Leading The Charge




As 2020 ushers in a new decade and a new set of daunting challenges for the world – climate change, the coronavirus – it’s all the more imperative that the world’s youngest continent rises to the crises and sees opportunities where there seem to be none.


These are the men and women forging ahead with credible, creative and profound strategies to shape our tomorrow.


Celebrating six years of the FORBES AFRICA 30 Under 30 list, they are the continent’s revolutionary thinkers revitalizing ideas and industries with fresh business models and innovative leadership.

Over 3,000 nominations flooded into our inboxes and landed on our desks from the start of 2020 for this Under 30 list. And the mammoth task? Whittling it down to 30 names.

While last year, we had 120 in total, with 30 finalists each in the categories of business, technology, sports and arts, this year, we chose to stay with 30: the best of the best spanning all industries. Our youngest list-maker this year is just 16!

In a continent pregnant with opportunities, and at a time a virus pandemic grips the world, young people are the only hope. They are able to step in to offer new and innovative solutions for the problems confronting Africa.



12 of South Africa’s Top Women Entrepreneurs





According to The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, Africa now has the highest growth in businesses started and run by women. In many fields, women entrepreneurs are leading the way.

At The Workspace, we love seeing this in practice. The women entrepreneurs among our members do everything. They offer tax advice to manufacture personal protective gear, build business software systems, run catering businesses, manage important NGOs and much, much more.

We’re also proud to have capable businesswoman, Colleen Mansour, as our CEO.

Towards the end of the ten years that the African Union has declared as African Women’s Decade, and in time for Women’s Day, we profile some of South Africa’s top women entrepreneurs.

7 Entrepreneurs To Watch In 2021






I love reading about Warren Buffett. And Bill Gates. And (insert hugely successful entrepreneur name here). They have lots of advice and insights to share that readers can implement into their own business journeys.

One only has to do a quick Google search to see the plethora of ‘7 Lessons from Steve Jobs’ or ‘What We Can Learn From Elon Musk’ articles that consume the internet to see how popular they are.


Personally, what I find even better is hearing about young, up and coming entrepreneurs. The business leaders of the future who are climbing the mountain but not quite at the top.


Or ones that are already successful but not as well known. That way, perhaps I could follow along in their journey.

From an investment perspective, it certainly offers more potential reward, trying to piggyback on future entrepreneurs. So who are the Zuckerbergs of the 2020s?

Here are seven people at various stages of their entrepreneurial journey across various industries worth paying attention to in 2021 and beyond.

Slack is a proprietary business communication platform developed by American software company Slack Technologies. Slack offers many IRC-style features, including persistent chat rooms organized by topic, private groups, and direct messaging.



Gift Lubele, an innovator, co-founder and COO of Kudoti, recently won this year’s BRICS Young Innovator Prize competition. He walked away with $25 000 (R 378 203,75) in prize money.

The BRICS Young Innovator Prize forms part of the BRICS Young Scientists Forum. The forum recognises and rewards quality research and innovation, including the use of artificial intelligence, in environmental protection and materials science, according to IT Web.

Lubele’s Kudoti – which is Zulu for ‘in the trash’ – helps waste management and recycling companies optimise their operations through the use of data collection tools.

Fast Company South Africa named Kudoti one of the 25 Most Innovative Companies in the country.
