LORA Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship strives to bring thought leaders, men and women who are pathfinders, entrepreneurs and change agents, men and women who have affected the very fibre of our thought processes, who influence our set of beliefs, and engage our mindsets in elements of value.
LORA has invited 10 experienced entrepreneurs to share their stories with us. On Saturday, 23 July 2016, we will host Lere Mgayiya, founder of Lere’s Shoe Shine Experience.
After hitting rock bottom, forty-year-old Lere Mosieane Mgayiya has become South Africa’s leading shoe shine entrepreneur.
Lere Mosieane Mgayiya dreamt of being a pilot. But when that didn’t work out he started the shoe shining business that you find in every major South African airport.
Today Lere’s Shoe Shine has expanded to five airports: Cape Town, OR Tambo, King Shaka, George and East London. He has 44 employees.
Mgayiya says, “The secret about starting is to just start.”
Lere will be sharing his entrepreneurial story, his business failures, moments he felt like giving up, what kept him going, his breakthroughs and lessons he learned so far.
Come join us and interact with Lere and other like-minded entrepreneurs.
