There are many funding initiatives in South Africa aimed at funding emerging entrepreneurs. But, how do entrepreneurs best prepare themselves to meet and pitch to potential investors?

In this week’s episode of Business Buzz, we chat with Clen Cook, an executive at The Research Institute for Innovation and Sustainability, where he has led numerous entrepreneur development programmes. He spoke to us on how to put together a successful business pitch and investment. We also speak to Jason Pau, Jack Ma’s Chief of Staff and senior director at Alibaba, on the Africa NetPreneur Prize and how to pitch to investors.

In the Buffalo index, we touch on how much it costs to outsource business plans.
