Heavy Chef Launches First Guide On How To Start A Business In South Africa

In an exclusive Cape Town event, Heavy Chef is launching a book entitled The Heavy Chef Guide To Starting A Business In South Africa. On May 24, 2018 at the Workshop17 venue in V&A Waterfront. Heavy Chef will be welcoming many of its previous speakers, business partners, collaborators and long-standing fans to celebrate the launch of the first Heavy Chef guide in a series of niche topics. 

The book is written by Heavy Chef CEO and Founder, serial entrepreneur Fred Roed. Roed explains: "I wanted to put together a guidebook with startup tips and lessons I've learned the hard way on starting and exiting a successful business. I've also included input from Heavy Chefs that have spoken at our events over the past decade. This is the first of many of these guides and hopefully will provide a huge amount of focused value for South African startup community members."
