who we are
Founded in 2012 by Selebogo Molefe, THUD events are hosted monthly across various cities in SA and select countries in SADC, East and, West Africa. Since the pandemic in 2020, we have digitized our interactions to curb the spread of the virus.
We are intentional in educating startups of the various opportunities to trade, that exist across regions and create connections between stakeholders that can scale startups.
We aim to create a culture of entrepreneurship through informal dialogue and have the ultimate goal of connecting African entrepreneurs to entrepreneurs across the world and even opportunities in the private and public sectors. In the long-term, we hope to build a network of 1 million connected entrepreneurs across Africa by 2020.
I guess in simple terms we connect entrepreneurs with each other in an environment that enables them to gain access to each other’s networks over food and drinks.
