We are entrepreneurs working together to build a South Africa for entrepreneurs and give a voice to the South African startup community.

Become a Champion

Startup Mzansi Champions are leaders, meta-connectors, community builders and entrepreneurial evangelists.


They actively connect entrepreneurs, organizations, initiatives and media, government and industry leaders to Startup Mzansi and its local Startup Communities and they represent Startup Mzansi within their communities, organizations, sectors and industries. Champions fuel MemberUP and StartupApp adoption and help to activate Startup Communities to grow where none exist.


Startup Mzansi will begin on boarding Champions for an initial pilot phase scheduled to begin April 17th.  Results from the pilot program will be used to support another call for Champions later in 2020.
