13:00 - 13:45 Presentation EasyEquities

From stage-star to investar
Before she knew a thing about investing or became the brand manager for EasyEquities, the only performance that concerned Carly Barnes was that which took place on a stage. Within a very short space of time, drawing on the knowledge of her peers and the EasyEquities community (or yousers as she calls them), her spotlight shifted onto the performance of markets, shares and her own capabilities as an investor. In this session, Carly shares how she grew to understand and create her own investment portfolio, and how a new age of EasyEquities investors inspired her with their stories and experiences - true testament to the idea that anyone can invest and claim a stake in their financial future.

15:00 - 15:45 Presentation ZAR X

Crowdfunding is illegal in South Africa. Isn't it?
Capital markets are not accessible channels for SMMEs, banks aren't particularly helpful and crowdfunding is, for all intents and purposes, illegal under South African legislation. So, where else do you turn as a small business owner when you want to raise capital, and what's really possible, given the inhospitable funding environment? In this session, Etienne Nel and Vusi Thembekwayo will share ideas on the new wave of funding platforms and opportunities set to completely shake up the old guard. If you're curious about the future of funding and capital, this is a session you cannot afford to miss!

By: Etienne Nel (CEO at ZAR X) and Vusi Thembekwayo (CEO at MyGrowthFund)
Hosted by: ZAR X
