Funding fashion | A Q&A session with Keitumetse Lekaba

Ask The Business Doctor your specific fashion business capital questions

Thanks again for your patience if you joined the original scheduled call on August 30th at 3 PM SAST. We’ve settled a new date & time: September 6th, 4 PM, and we hope you will be able to join us. Registration has been reopened, but only until the afternoon of Friday 1st September to keep the session intimate and allow as much time as possible for individual answers.

Hi fashion pros,

African fashion businesses face a number of challenges, including securing growth funding. While tricky market factors and a less-than-stellar perception of creative industry businesses in the world of finance both contribute to the issue, fashion entrepreneurs often do as well — with mistakes from inexperience, noncompliant records and bad money habits that make businesses unattractive for investment. Together, these external and internal factors keep many fashion businesses from reaching their full potential.

If you're ready to face these issues head on, Keitumetse Lekaba, aka The Business Doctor, is here to help with a FREE hour of her time and expertise.
