The workshop was awesome! It gave us a lot of valuable information about how to start a successful business and why some fail. Mr Trevor made it fun to learn, and i left with clear steps to get started. Learning about the qualities of a successful entrepreneur was inspiring, and even the sharing resources to help us keep learning and growing as entrepreneurs was really great. The part that stood out for me most was the 9Ms model. Especially under the aspect of money where it was mentioned that excessive money reduces creativity. This is something I struggled with. The inability to ensure I use my creative juices to come up with ways to start with the little I have and not the grand amounts I was looking forward to having. And the aspect of how you can only produce high quality output if you put in high quality input.Thank you so much for the insightful session. I really learnt a lot and look forward to implementing it.

Even though my team didn’t win, I believe that life is a learning process so is entrepreneurship. As you mentioned today on the session that we learn from failures and that there’s always an opportunity and a room for improvement. Today was a day of networking and expanding our knowledge.What stood out to me the most is the GM model and having a market. There’s a lot of things to look out for but it’s important to be decisive as well, that’s why it’s important to have a mission to guide you and keep you on track. Creating value for customers was a highlight for me, I have always wondered how apps such as Facebook, YouTube , Netflix do it and you have simplified a thought I had for years in 5 minutes. Very grateful. The 4IR is here and it’s something we should consider also as times are changing.It takes time and it’s not easy to be an entrepreneur you need the skills , it can take years , that is why it’s crucial to be persistent. However there will be moments of doubts, and there will be wins. Understanding how startups fail is key . Never think short term always look for longevity think long term . I learnt about the 10 business opportunities in Africa with Food being number 1.Lastly I learnt that just as an entrepreneur money can’t solve everything there are certain doors money can’t open, so know what you want , start where you are with the resources you have , start small , always research and be curious and experiment , know your natural capital , the type of quality you’ll offer to the market , fit in , make relationships because social capital can open doors , like today I attended the session because of social capital and lastly invest your time.I was at the right place and at the right time today to have all this knowledge . A single session made a difference and has shifted my perspective . Using the skills I have learnt today , I have hit a milestone towards my entrepreneurial journey. It’s an opportunity I won’t take for granted.

In summary, being a successful entrepreneur requires qualities like curiosity, adaptability, and innovation. When starting a business, consider the 9 M's of resources, and explore business opportunities in areas like food, renewable energy, and fintech in Africa. It's crucial to identify a market need and have a clear mission to guide your actions. Strategic planning models, including the rational approach and emergent strategies, play a role in shaping your business. Remember that business is an ecosystem where you must define, create, deliver, and capture value. The key to success is understanding these principles and applying them effectively.Qhawekazi Mdolomba from UMP Event

Today I saw the futureIn that I'm saying I was taught skills I didn't haveCOCA opened my eyes with 9M's model and characteristics of an entrepreneur building my passion for business to be greaterI found out about other people's journeies in business and how to better work on the tools that they have provided and through the experiences they have how to better build my own journey.I am a business owner yet some skills I didn't know or see necessary until todayWith these entrepreneurial skills I am not only an entrepreneur but a CEO,employer and dreamer .COCA must continue with these workshops and these skills building because little by little South Africa will thrive.

Today's event was very much insightful and informative, all the knowledge that was shared today was very beneficial to me and it opened my eyes more about entrepreneurship.Learning about the 9Ms was also an eye opener for me, having to learn about the importance of value chain and how it works in a business. Receiving the knowledge about funding and how to build value for your business was a great experience.It was an honor to have such an amazing event and I appreciate the opportunity of attending it.
One day with COCA and you are equipped with knowledge of a lifetime. Thank you for the workshop that you hosted at University of Mpumalanga.We were privileged to have you to sharpen our entrepreneurial journeys, some are still going to endeavour their ideas and now are getting ready to implement.From the beginning with a great facilitator Trevor Mwale, the presentation made was well prepared and delivered. Good engagement with the audience is recognized as it was impossible to sleep on this one. Well organized group activities and practicality of examples used in the sessions.Last but not least is the good hospitality provided, well catered for people to stay engaged in the workshop. Thank you for sharing information.

Having attended COCA Entrepreneurship Skills Programme today, I must say I'm thoroughly impressed. This program is a hidden gem in the world of entrepreneurship training. What sets it apart is its innovative approach to education.Today, I had the privilege of attending a sample class, and I was blown away by the quality of instruction. Mr. Mwale is not only an expert in his field but also an exceptional educator. He made complex and new concepts feel approachable and applicable in the real world.One unique feature that stood out during my exploration is the emphasis on experiential learning and approach to entrepreneurship instead of just waiting for conducive market conditions. Today's session included hands-on activities that challenged us to think like entrepreneurs and starting a business with a ZAR 2000 budget. It was a refreshing departure from traditional classroom learning.COCA is committed to fostering a vibrant entrepreneurial community. Today, I had the chance to network with like-minded individuals and even met a few established entrepreneurs who provided invaluable insights and mentorship.I also learned that they offer a range of flexible schedules to accommodate various learners. Whether you're a full-time professional or a student, COCA seems to have you covered.
