#6 Kennedy Kitheka and Kumbirai Gundani - Entrepreneurship Is Not a Fall-Back Option
Unlike the start-up cultures of the world's leading innovating nations, South Africa's entrepreneurship environment is not one that readily welcomes- or funds- failures or rookie start-ups. If South Africa is to call itself a leading African economy that embraces innovation, it needs to start encouraging and supporting its young entrepreneurial minds. These are lessons hard learned by Kennedy Kitheka and Kumbirai Gundani, partners in the educational platform, Funda (which means "to learn"). Here they share their personal journey into the world where very few university graduates start out their careers.
