Margaret Hirsch, Chief Operations Officer of the Hirsch Group recently attended the Liberty and Standard bank strategic partnership launch which took place at the Liberty head office in Braamfontein. The event featured a showcase of the Lionesses of Africa accelerator’s first cohort of female entrepreneurs. “A business breakfast was hosted for guests to mingle and network with each other, learning and getting to know about each other’s businesses” commented PRO Narisha Somaroo. “Chief Executive for Liberty Thabo Dloti announced their new partnership with Standard bank incubator and Lionesses of Africa, and how it is going to be an amazing journey as more women get an opportunity to become successful entrepreneurs.”
Commented Margaret “It’s all about networking today, there are so many women who don’t know how to take their business to the next level. We host women’s networking at all Hirsch branches and they start off small and I try and grow them, then I pass them onto the Standard Bank incubator programme. When they network they meet new people and their business expands , and women love to support women”. Comment Margaret Hirsch.
