Startup Grind – your unique opportunity to sit down and talk with some of the most influential people in SA and abroad – is back in Johannesburg next week.

Your speaker this time around is Lynette Ntuli, CEO of Innate Investment Solutions – a local entity that handles the financial side of the built environment around you.

Ntuli was also selected as one of the top 200 “Leaders of Tomorrow” by the St Gallen Symposium, so you know you’ll be in good hands.

That’s just one of her honours, however, which we won’t mention here, read about them in the “More info” link below, or ask her yourself on the day.

  • 18:30: Networking (Food & Welcome Drink)
  • 19:00: Fireside Chat
  • 19:45: Q&A / AMA
  • 20:00: Networking (Cash Bar)

On an unrelated not, checking out this even’ts agenda, it pencils in a Q&A / AMA for 19:45. While Q&A (Questions and Answers) are well known, AMAs (Ask Me Anything) are something made famous on Reddit.

It’s not uncommon to go onto the popular website to find powerhouses such as Steve WozniakSir David Attenborough, or even the president of the United States on the platform being asked all manner of questions.

We hope Startup Grind adopts this unique approach to informal chats, but hope no one asks the dreaded question: “Would rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck?”

Actually, scratch that, we need to ask all world leaders this pressing question as soon as possible.
