Christine Moon from Google, Silicon Valley – on a mission to find places in South Africa and Africa for Google to start incubators. She will be sharing with us what Google has up its mammoth sleeve.
Jacqui Buchanan, co-chair of the San Francisco-based South African American Business Community. Jacqui is a South African by birth but now hails from the Valley and she will be sharing South African success stories she has come across and also expand a bit on South Africans doing business in the Valley and other places abroad.

Justin Stanford, who will be giving us an update on what’s happening with the Initiative.
Rob van Vuuren (from Corne and Twakkie fame) will be our MC, we’re not sure how geeky he is but we do know that he is hilarious.
We’ll end off with 6 elevator pitches. We have received quite a few so far and if you still want to enter, you better hurry, you have until tomorrow morning, 10am. Henk has done an amazing blog post on the 5 W’s of a Great Elevator Pitch so please read this first and then send your pitch to After that we will inform the top 6 that they will be presenting.
It is going to be a fantastic evening, filled with inspirational talks and people. A great space where you can relax, buy food and drink market style and network on hay bales while listening to some chilled out tunes, surrounded by fairy lights.
