ForwardFund invites you to attend their inspiring Women's Day High Tea at the Lourensford Market on Saturday, 12 August 2017. "This event has become a highlight on the ForwardFund calendar as it allows us to showcase the work of some of our extraordinarily talented female entrepreneurs," says director of ForwardFund, Tina Thiart.

Visitors to the event, which takes place from 10:00 to 14:00, will be treated to delicious high tea treats and will also be able to browse around the stalls offering beautiful handmade crafts and baked delicacies. "Tickets are just R100 per person, or R1 000 for a corporate table of 10 people. Corporate tables are also invited to compete in the Table Challenge by decorating their branded tables with some extra bling," says Tina. As an added incentive, there are prizes up for grabs for those seated at the winning table.

The empowerment of women in South Africa is a core focus area for ForwardFund. "We are firmly committed to mentoring and supporting female entrepreneurs in every way possible. Female entrepreneurs are key to eradicating poverty at a grassroots level in our country," says Tina.

ForwardFund is also the co-founder of the Women Investment Network (WIN). The main purpose of WIN is to establish an ongoing partnership between existing female business leaders and aspiring female entrepreneurs. "Our dedicated women business leaders invest their time and resources on an ongoing basis in order to mentor those who are just starting out on their business journeys," explains Tina.
