Ubuntu Mentorship Program

"Ubuntu (Zulu/Xhosa pronunciation: [ùɓúntʼú]; English: /uˈbʊntuː/ oo-BUUN-too)

I am a human because I belong. I participate. I share.

In essence, I am what I am because of who we all are."

Ubunutu Mentorship Program

It is no secret that Israel is internationally recognised as a “Startup Nation”. This prestigious title is not just because Israel has the largest number of startups per capita in the world, but it is also due to the size and success of Israeli startups.


The incredible number of Israeli startups is even more impressive given that Israel is geographically challenged, is often in a state of war, and has no natural resources.


It is generally agreed that the success of Israel's’ Startup Nation is credited to the out-of-the-box thinking and the brazen approach of Israeli entrepreneurs.


Therefore, in line with its mandate, the Chamber has approached a handful of key movers and shakers in the Israeli Startup community and created the Ubuntu Mentorship Program. Through this program, and from the heart of the Startup Nation, industry experts have aligned themselves with the Chamber to mentor young South African entrepreneurs and startups to scale their enterprises. 


The Ubuntu Mentors come from a variety of backgrounds and have played significant roles in Israel’s Startup Nation.


If you would like to join our Ubuntu Mentorship Program, then please contact the Chamber.
