26. Shingai Nyagweta
- Business: KuNa Kids
- Established: 2009
Being ahead of the market and losing the inspiration behind her children’s clothing line didn’t stop Nyagweta from launching a successful fashion business – both online and in Melville’s trendy 27 Boxes, also coming soon to Cape Town.
Nyagweta went from working with a veteran fashion designer, who encouraged her to start her own business, to launching an online store when SA wasn’t ready. After almost going back to being an employee in the corporate world, enrolling in a programme at the Branson School of Entrepreneurship helped her stay the course. Today she’s opening a second location and looking to export to Europe – starting with Spain, London and Germany.
