Khanyisile Madonko-Nderezina, 25, Zimbabwe, Co-Founder and CEO of Sakhile Madonko Enterprises
According to his website, goes by the nickname “The Vigorous Entrepreneur” and is a Serial Entrepreneur with experience in a vast number of industries, fast becoming a leading Business Consultant & Business Coach, Companies Director, Speaker and Thought Leader. He has connected with partners in Nigeria, Dubai, London, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Istanbul and looks to expand his network even further. He has had some trouble in the past with “gaining the same ear one would land as an older entrepreneur” due to his age, as many business ventures he had were affected because he was considered too young. So, he and his team had to work extra hard to prove their worth as businessmen. Now, Madonko can count a growing list of businesses he has worked with, including the University of the Witwatersrand’s Development and Leadership Unit. He employs four permanent staff and two consultants who regularly work with him, as well as interns who focus on analysis.
