Seven South Africans named in prestigious Forbes List
Johannesburg – February 5, 2014 – Leading business magazine Forbes, has announced its top 30 African Entrepreneurs under 30 for 2014 which includes seven young South Africans. Amongst those recognised for business excellence and innovation is Ditshego Media CEO and Chairman of the South African Reading Foundation, Tebogo Ditshego.
After gaining experience in the media industry and working as a freelance journalist, Tebogo Ditshego decided to start his own Public Relations agency which has since worked with clients such as the Direct Selling Association, Avon South Africa, Justine and Shanduka Group.
While developing Ditshego Media, Tebogo Ditshego started a book club called Read a Book SA which falls under the South African Reading Foundation. Read a Book SA has since become the most followed book club in Africa and has also partnered with Vodacom to rollout eReader libraries across the country.
“I’m honoured to have been listed as one of Forbes Magazine’s top 30 Entrepreneurs under the age of 30. The decision to become an entrepreneur was motivated by our current challenges relating to youth unemployment which is also felt globally and there is a need for more young Africans and youth worldwide to start innovative businesses,” says Tebogo Ditshego.
