Connect your brand with the most digital-savvy wide-reaching audience in Africa.

We have one of the most influential communities of entrepreneurs on the African continent.
Email us to enquire about sponsoring events, or advertising on our various media offerings.



Our monthly events and workshops 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.



Inspired by a simple idea: Since 2005, Heavy Chef has been taking doers to our community. What if we take our community to the doers? Heavy Chef takes delegations of community members to the most important business hotspots, globally.
