SAB Kickstart anniversary case studies

I recently had the honour of interviewing some of the brightest young business people in South Africa and writing up case studies on their achievements. This was for a publication commemorating the 15th year anniversary of the SAB Kickstart project, a great initiative that aims to give a hand to young entrepreneurs from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.

Being part of telling these inspirational stories has been one of the highlights of 2010 for me. At the end of every conversation I had a smile on my face and a spring in my step thanks to the inspirational stories and immensely positive attitudes of these South Africans.

SAB Kickstart has posted the case studies to Facebook and here are the links to the ones I wrote:
