Johannesburg, 07 August 2017 – Newly-appointed Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Riversands Incubation Hub, Tafadzwa Madavo will be one of the speakers at FundEX2017 on Thursday 17 August 2017 from 09h00 to 17h00.

Those who know Taf as he’s affectionately known will tell you he’s someone who wants to get things done and that’s exactly what he strives to do when it comes to assisting entrepreneurs to build sustainable businesses. Prior to being appointed COO, he managed the business incubator’s strategic partnerships with the objective of identifying, developing and delivering effective support structures for all businesses that fall under the Riversands umbrella.

Taf has years of experience working in banking, finance and with international NGOs. He is no stranger to working with entrepreneurs and has had successful and not so successful businesses to his name – making him the best person to speak to when it comes to South Africa’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and topics such as what funders look for, why applications are declined, how to match funding needs with funders and understanding how to get funding-ready.

Join us at FundEX2017 on Thursday 17 August to hear his insights and why he believes entrepreneurs should embrace failure.
