> 1. I'M AN ENTREPRENEUR. HOW CAN I GET HEAVY CHEF FOUNDATION SUPPORT?
We partner with a number of grassroots organisations in rural, township and CBD areas, and through their help identify disconnected entrepreneurs to support with access to learning. If you are part of or know of an organisation in your area, please let us know. We're working hard to build out this network of collaborators as quickly as our capacity and funding allows.
> 2. HOW ARE FOUNDATION MEMBERS SELECTED?
In partnership with various grassroots entrepreneur networks we identify individuals with a track-record of projects. Wether big or small, successful or failure - our focus is on those who's actions speak for themselves. Everything else - age, gender, location, ethnicity - these are secondary traits to the Heavy Chef philosophy of 'doing'.
