Hello, my name is Akakandelwa Kandepwe, and I have been fostering entrepreneurship and social impact initiatives for several years. As the founder and managing director of Tonse Management, I am dedicated to creating opportunities for youth and women, promoting sustainability, and advocating for diversity and inclusion. I’m looking to support early stage startup founders in their set-up phase as I believe mentors can add the most value then. My expertise lies in operational management and marketing, particularly in the areas of personal development, economic empowerment, and environmental sustainability.
