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, 13 August 2016, we will host Farah Fortune, founder of African Star Communications.
Publicist extraordinaire Farah Fortune built her business not by courting big clients, but by backing young up-and-comers, and growing her brand right alongside theirs.
Farah launched African Star Communications in 2008, with R1 000 in her pocket, she spent R589 of that on registering a CC and the rest on business cards.
From working on her bedroom floor and sharing two-minute noodles with her daughter as she struggled to survive, today African Star Communications represents high-profile rappers such as Casper Nyovest, K.O and Solo, and stand-up comedians Loyiso Gola and Jason Goliath.
With a diploma in PR and a business law diploma from WITS University, Fortune has years of experience in the South African PR field, while also dappling in the media when she lived in the UK.
Come join us and interact with Farah and other like-minded entrepreneurs.
