Wish I Knew: A business series to inspire and equip SA entrepreneurs with fresh perspectives and tools to thrive

There is arguably nothing more invaluable to aspiring South African entrepreneurs than hands-on experience. We understand in an economy where there is a large appetite for entrepreneurship, the transfer of knowledge, and the sharing of ideas and practical lessons are all the more important.

We value the growth and journey of a business owner, which is why the main objective behind the Wish I Knew series, facilitated by MiWay Insurance in partnership with GIBS Business School – is a platform geared towards facilitating the conversations that can help entrepreneurs survive – and thrive.

The Wish I Knew series plays a vital role in providing access to information, fostering skills development, steering important conversations, and offering entrepreneurs much-needed inspiration and advice.
