Khanyisile Madonko-Nderezina, Zimbabwe

From a sweet-selling business in Zimbabwe to founding a student café and restaurant in South Africa, 25-year-old Madonko-Nderezina has experimented with so many business ideas. Thus, when he realized some of the challenges that SMEs experience that affect their successes, he decided to set up a business that would revert this. This gave birth to Sakhile Madonko in 2015, a company that provides strategy, consulting, business development and growth advisory for small businesses. The leading Business Consultant & Business Coach, however, faced some difficulties in the past with “gaining the same ear one would land as an older entrepreneur” due to his age. This affected many business ventures he had 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.
