He has a mag­nif­i­cent pas­sion for events and as a whole, en­tre­pre­neur­ial devel­op­ment. Nyiko Mathe­bula is a 21 year old from Lim­popo’s own vil­lage called Ga-Matshwi. Study­ing LLB at the Univer­sity of Lim­popo, the am­bi­tious Nyiko’s dream is based on en­cour­ag­ing en­trepreneur­ship upon young in­di­vid­u­als.

Cur­rently seek­ing as­sis­tance in fund­ing his devel­op­ment pro­gramme. Nyiko shares about the ini­tia­tive. “The con­fer­ence is aimed at stim­u­lat­ing and en­cour­ag­ing en­trepreneur­ship in the Lim­popo Province. We want to use it as a plat­form that will de­liver the nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion and knowl­edge to as­pir­ing and ex­ist­ing en­trepreneur­s by invit­ing ex­perts from var­i­ous fields within the busi­ness world.” The 21-year old be­lieve that this will also serve as an op­por­tu­nity for people to con­nect, net­work and dis­cover po­ten­tial clients. Speaking to Em­pow­ered Youth, he says; “People will get the op­por­tu­nity to ad­ver­tise their busi­nesses and the prod­ucts they offer as this will give po­ten­tial clients easy ac­cess.”

His views on en­trepreneur­ship:

“En­trepreneur­ship is an im­por­tant part as­pect in our lives that simply cannot be ig­nored,” she says. Asked about how the spon­sor­ship would as­sist, he says; “Tech­ni­cal and fi­nan­cial sup­port above all of course. Also think the will to learn and ac­quire skills and knowl­edge that may help build and sus­tain their busi­nesses is lack­ing in some en­trepreneur­s. This con­fer­ence will also pro­vide answers to that.” His be­lief for en­trepreneur­ship is of com­bat­ing unem­ploy­ment and giv­ing. “It is through en­tre­pre­neur that new em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties are cre­ated and the fight against poverty is strength­ened,” he says.
