10.15 - 11.00 The age of the entrepreneur or the story of a hi-tech
Technology is a field which seems to breed entrepreneurs - names such as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs come quickly to mind. In South Africa over the last 15 years, entrepreneur Antony Wilmot has grown his technology business, Singular, into a major force.

Hosted by: SAICA
11.15 - 12.00 Managing risk beyond compliance
Maximising shareholder value in a fast-changing economic climate can be tricky. Such climates are navigable only through the foresight that comes with the mastery of both the science and art of risk management, which guarantees greater returns and brings more excitement than a mere obsession with compliance. Do you want to know how imagination works to avoid crises in business? If so, then join us.
Hosted by: SekelaXabiso
12.15 - 13.00 Laugh or cry, win or lose, we support the conquest
South Africa has to grow at 7% or more for 20 years if unemployment is to be brought under control, says Pravin Gordhan. So it is up to us to ensure that we develop and grow existing business, as well as make it easy for entrepreneurs to enter and stay in the market. Founders Forum exists for the darer, the believer, the catalyst. We exist for the eternal optimist, the "I will not be defeated" and the "It too shall pass". We exist for the entrepreneur. They, who see things others don't, take the risks that most won't and charter paths unexplored. In this workshop we share the vision of Founders Forum - three entrepreneurs seeking to solve entrepreneurial problems with entrepreneurs, not just for entrepreneurs.
Hosted by: The Founders Forum
Room: Boardroom 6-7
13.15 - 16.15 Spectacular finals of Africa's premier Global Case Study competition
A clash of the final six of 320 teams from six universities in five countries around the world - Australia, Indonesia, Ghana, Zambia and South Africa - vying to prove their mettle to an international panel of judges as the world's best.
