Our monthly events and Masterclasses 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.
Heavy Chef captures the crazy-wild narrative of entrepreneurship in our blog, video channel, TV show, podcast and newsletter. Our social channels feature write-ups of our events, videos of speakers and pics of attendees. Our partners share their experiences, and we tap into our network to glean the heart-wrenching, life-changing journeys of African entrepreneurs.
