Wednesday 24th May 2017

Dear Entrepreneurs,

I hope that you enjoyed the recent festivities, and that you are approaching the incoming winter season with renewed energy and fresh ideas for your business.

As planned during our first encounter last April 5, it’s now time to proceed with the actual implementation of the business website. We are then going to have another meeting with those of you who want to concretely contribute to this new endeavor: a good number of you stepped forward already (proposing different kinds of contributions), but I’m sending the invite again to all of you hoping for an even wider response.

The details of the meeting are as follows:

Wednesday 24 May 2017
17h30 for 18h00
Room 18.3/4/5, 18th Floor
WESGRO, SA Reserve Bank Building, 60 St Georges Mall, City Centre.

Christophe Viarnaud of Cap40 will be there again, to provide some more counseling if needed. The aim is for us to sit around the table and concretely decide “who can do what” for the new website, in order to commence soonest with its implementation. We will also have to think about a name: after consultations with colleagues from Pretoria, the idea is not to confine the new website to the Cape area - in order to leave it open to possible, future contributions from the rest of the country - and therefore it would be good to find a name that reflects better this comprehensive South Africa-Italy scope (please feel free to come with ideas!).

I hope to see many of you on the 24th (kindly RSVP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), and I send you my best regards.
