What is a Do-Ference? 

Bringing together entrepreneurs, startup and finance experts from across the South African entrepreneurship ecosystem, the Do-ference is designed to help you “DO” - to give you the knowledge, tools, and connections to grow your business. Find out how, when, and where to access the right funding for you.

The Do-ference programme runs on three tracks (ideation, incubation and growth), so you can choose to attend the sessions that most apply to your business over the 2 days.

What will it cover? 

We've got something for all entrepreneurs, but all sessions are guided by the following themes:

1. Understanding your business. What, when and where are my funding options?

2. Social finance. How can impact investing and innovative finance work for your business?

3. Reaching your goal. The tools and experts that can support your entrepreneurial journey.

4. Inspiring inclusive and sustainable business models. What works well in delivering impact and achieving growth.
