Building a company alone is tough. However, when you have the support and guidance of top founders, the journey becomes a lot smoother. As business owners, we face new challenges and tough decisions every day.
The most effective way to overcome these hurdles is by surrounding ourselves with like-minded founders who have been through similar experiences that can help us identify our blind spots.
But don't just take our word for it; research studies from around the world confirm the exceptional results achieved by entrepreneurs who belong to great networks. Silicon Valley, MIT, Y Combinator, and many other networks have shown to all significantly increase odds of success.
If you're leading a high-growth company in South Africa, finding your tribe can be challenging. That's where Civitas comes in.
By joining Civitas, you gain immediate access to a community of great founders so you can learn from some of the best up-and-coming entrepreneurs in the country.
