Future Females workshop launch in Philippi

Future Females,  a movement to increase the number of female entrepreneurs and better support their successes, is launching its first workshop in Philippi Village, in partnership with the UK-SA Tech Hub, part of the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and Solution Space at the UCT Graduate School of Business (GSB).


The session will focus on equipping female entrepreneurs with practical design thinking strategies they can apply to the challenges in their businesses.

This will be the first workshop in an ongoing series run by Future Females in partnership with the UK-SA Tech Hub.  This series is designed to support current and aspiring South African female entrepreneurs who have a tech-based business idea with the potential to positively impact their communities, and the world.  The series will be 6-8 workshops held across three provinces, between now and April 2020.

Join Future Females on Wednesday February 12 at the GSB Solution Space, 1 Cwangco Crescent, Philippi, for the first workshop – Design Thinking: How to Build A Customer-Centric Business – led by Dr Cherise Dunn.  This is a workshop designed to help you better understand your customers and reach your business goals.

What is design thinking?

Design thinking is a useful method to help small and large businesses generate, test, and implement creative ideas and solutions to problems faced by their customers, and their own teams.

The design thinking workshop introduces steps throughout the process and interactive activities, where entrepreneurs will participate in real-time business-related activities and examples that will help them to develop innovative strategies to meet customer demands. Entrepreneurs are also taught the basics of possible online tools that can be used to help with this creative, collaborative process.
