Plenty of excitement around 2016 Fellows

UWC Centre for Entrepreneurship, Fellows 2016

Rising South African businesswoman Olivia Ngweni has lauded the impact that the UWC Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation’s Fellowship Programme has had on her business.

Olivia Ngweni is recognised as one of the most prominent upcoming businesswoman in Mzansi through her company Thembela Kuthi Staffing Services based in Parow.

Thembela Kuthi Staffing Services is a national staffing agency, which is 100% Black-owned and a Level 1 B-BBEE company. The company offers staffing services, career management, background checking and Human Resources services to a wide range of clients, from big to small businesses, across all industries.

Ngeweni boasts over 12 years of experience in her field, and is active in an organisation that empowers and supports South African businesswomen.

So it’s a huge compliment when Ngweni offers rave reviews around the UWC Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and its support for local businesses. She’s one of 16 business owners involved in the 2016 Fellowship Programme.

“I’m really enjoying the 2016 Fellowship Programme. It’s adding so much value to my business and to my experience as a business owner,” Ngweni told CEI.

“From financials, like managing your cash flow, to growth and business preparation in the modern market, I’m learning so much. After just a few classes, I can already implement the things I’ve learned into business practice, which will make a positive difference.”

This is vital as Ngweni plans to expand nationwide.

“We started out small, but we’re enjoying notable growth. Thembela Kuthi Staffing Services is already working with a wide range of clients, which includes small and big businesses. The main aim is to get more clients across South Africa,” she explained. “I believe the lessons I’ll learn during the 2016 Fellowship Programme will help me achieve this.”
