Why is networking so important for young entrepreneurs?
Young entrepreneurs must know one thing: success does not happen overnight and it is not without perseverance. Networking builds confidence, inspires, motivates and opens up opportunities you would otherwise never have access to. Young people get to meet other successful people, who can mentor, coach, educate and encourage them on their way up.

Interview with the Founder of Success Summit, Dr Nondumiso Mzizana

What is Success Summit all about?

“After winning the award as South Africa’s Businesswoman of the year, entrepreneur category, I felt that the next step would be to impart this knowledge to young entrepreneurs. I would like to empower, foster excellence in the area of small and medium enterprises, coach and mentor successful as well as aspiring entrepreneurs.”

“Success Summit is about personal and business self-development. We wish to enable a new set of entrepreneurs who will not have to depend on employment for survival, and thus create more jobs in the process.”

“Our focus is on building successful enterprises. We focus on helping people with entrepreneurial skills, leadership skills, marketing, innovation and sales skills. We deliver training programs focusing on communications skills, presentation skills, referral marketing, networking skills, coaching, mentoring and more.”

What was the inspiration behind starting this Initiative?

I have found that women and youths in particular face unique challenges in business. Women struggle to balance their everyday lives with their careers, to say “no” assertively, have difficulty with self-promotion and suffer from lack of confidence. In addition they lack negotiation skills, and have doubts about venturing into business deals. They also suffer from procrastination and other problems.

Young people in the corporate world and aspiring young entrepreneurs wanting to start their own businesses struggle to get accurate information, advice and direction due to lack of appropriate mentors, coaches or role models who have appropriate experience and have succeeded in their own right.

I wanted to create a forum where women and youths can overcome these challenges and help each other by sharing best practices, tactics and strategies and partner with a financial and government entity that understands the mind of an entrepreneur.

What do you hope to achieve with this summit?
I believe with these summits we shall create a “get up and do it for yourself” mindset amongst upcoming entrepreneurs, where youth and women won’t have to depend on being employed and thus create jobs in the process. The key focus will be mentorship with follow up, the success mindset, innovation and creativity. Some profit made from these workshops will be invested in rural women and rural high-school youth, who I strongly feel are very much neglected.
