This speech is a real wake-up call for Africa. In this short video, Vusi challenges African entrepreneurs to think radically. According to him, ‘it’s no longer OK for African businesses to start small and stay small.’

Faith is the ability to see the invisible, to believe in the impossible and trust in the unknown. Africa needs us to have faith. Vusi Thembekwayo
