The event will be held at the Roof Garden Bar on Wednesday, 03 April 2019 and will feature a variety of well-known Port Elizabeth based restaurateurs.

In collaboration with brands like Absa and Roof Garden Bar, just to name a few. The Woke Network hopes to continue creating a series that will not only inspire but also motivate action from the youth to act and apply all the skills and knowledge they gain from these sessions.

“The goal of our initiative has been to create a culture of entrepreneurship in Port Elizabeth and consequently networking opportunities between young entrepreneurs,” says Woke Network founder, Vuyo Tutu.

"Our events have been well supported so far and we feel that we are on the right path towards achieving our goals and bringing people together towards creating this culture."
