Heavy Chef creates inspirational experiences for graduates, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
Our name comes from the saying never trust a skinny chef*. We celebrate people who walk the talk, who practice what they preach - who eat their own food. We believe that, in a world of talkers, it's the doers that are going to change it. Together with our partners, we aim to inspire our community members to start things and empower them to succeed.
*Nope, nothing to do with cooking. Heavy Chef runs events, workshops and internships for graduates, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in South Africa and beyond.
Our monthly events have been running since 2007 and have featured business visionaries, entrepreneurs, leaders, creatives, technologists, disrupters, thought leaders, politicians, treeshakers, and eccentrics - frankly, most of whom were crazy mofos. The one thing they all have in common? They're all doers.
The Heavy Chef Magazine features interviews, profile pieces and opinion articles written about and by some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs / intrepreneurs on the planet.
Heavy Chef takes budding African entrepreneurs to visit international businesses; and budding international entrepreneurs to visit local African businesses. Heavy Chef provides the richest educational experiences for students, graduates and aspiring African and international entrepreneurs.
