The radio premiere of the show will be followed by a television premiere early 2021.
“Entrepreneurs are a key component of Namibia and Africa’s developmental agenda and it is with great pride that I take this journey to provide a platform which they can, like any other industry, be heard,” Kadhikwa said about the show. “We have been working extremely hard to ensure that this is not just another business show, but one that actively contributes to our growth as a nation and continent at large.”
She added that the show will serve as a bridge towards creating a culture of mentorship in both formal and informal sectors of Namibia.
For the show, Kadhikwa will be engaging, discussing, probing and unpacking key topics with various speakers, ranging from entrepreneurs, professionals, experts, leaders and trendsetters.
The opening show, “Why you should start a business, Now!” is one not to miss, Kadhikwa emphasised. “In this first episode I summon my experience as an entrepreneur of many years to impart invaluable knowledge that may change the lives of many. Therefore, this will be a special episode not to be missed!”
The show, produced by Twapewa Kadhikwa of the Institute of Entrepreneurship and SME Development, will also be available on a live stream on Facebook.
“I remain grateful to Eagle FM who saw the potential of this show and availed their platform to commence with it. Indeed, the show will be a reality TV show as well next year, but this platform gives us the right audience and creates scope for growth and development for the next one year and beyond. I encourage those who may want to further partner with us on the initiative to contact me immediately,” she said.
