Educating Africa

 

Speakers: 

  • Luvuyo Rani, CEO, Silulo
  • Lukhanyo, Founder, Thabo Mbeki Youth Hub
  • Marlon Parker, CEO, RLabs

 

After a triumphant event in Johannesburg with Sam Paddock, S'onqoba Maseko and Former South African President Thabo Mbeki, Heavy Chef now brings the incendiary topic of education to Cape Town. We have invited three formative individuals who are on the front-lines of education. After a brief stint teaching at Bishops, Luvuyo Rani is now teaching basic computer skills to tens of thousands of Africans through his company Silulo Ulutho. Lukhanyo Neer is the founder of the Thabo Mbeki Foundation Youth Hub, which is driving the convergence of education and the 4th Industrial Revolution in Africa. Then, finally, Marlon Parker is the founder and CEO of RLabs, which has caught the world's attention, teaching over 11m Africans through its innovative approach to embracing technology. Together on stage for the first time, these three pioneers will unpack what it will take to educate the fastest growing population on the planet. This is one of the most important events of the year.

 

This event is for curious bystanders, interested onlookers, fringe investors, smart corporates, ambitious entrepeneurs, technophiles, misfits, smarty-pants and skinny chefs alike. What you waiting for? Book your ticket already.
