Mentorship Connection

This connection is free for all venture stages.

Two meetings per month

Unlimited chat, email, or text within boundaries.


I have 20 years of corporate experience ranging from M&A, debt financing and Energy deals, from deal origination to execution in and out of Sub-Sahara Africa. In addition, I also have general FMCG experience at a Fortune 500 company.

Despite my experience and being qualified as a lawyer, I consider myself a business person with legal skills. For this reason, I have invested in several startups and have walked the business journey with them through Jozi Angels.

Lastly, I currently mentor some other founders who have found my insights useful.

Mentorship motivation

  • I am looking for new investments
  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

I currently mentor 2 founders and have found that there is a lack of general corporate and life experience, which can only help the founders.

In addition, it’s good to see the caliber of founders on a personal level and inspiration when dealing with talented founders!
