Matsi Modise started her professional career as an investment banker, but after two years she realised it wasn’t the career for her.
She decided to become an entrepreneur and founded her own company, Furaha Afrika Holding. Furaha Afrika Holding is a Pan-African Advisory company that focuses on entrepreneurship development strategies and coaching; as well as market-entry strategies and investments in business development technologies.
She also co-founded Emerge, a business development advisory business that structures SME development strategies for corporate entities, banks and Institutions of Higher Learning.
Along with her involvement in these two companies, Modise is currently the managing director of SiMODiSA, an industry association with a mission to accelerate entrepreneurship by collaborating with policy makers.
Matsi Modise shares her top advice to budding and future women entrepreneurs:
“Be resilient, the road is tough! No point giving up! Finish what you started! The only security you have is you! Not a job, Not a pay check!” – Matsi Modise
