Another great Durban event for Entrepreneurs – The Hookup Dinner


Yesterday I attended The Hookup Dinner at The Factory Cafe in Durban.


The brainchild of @DrLifesgud and co-owned by @mutantpigeon

They have a wonderful team around them including @GoSocialSA @dnice797 and many more inspiring people.

So just what is The Hookup Dinner?  Well it is a monthly event for Entrepreneurs.   The aim being to let 5 lucky Entrepreneurs pitch their business to the audience.  They are then asked questions by the audience as well.  Last night @Intro_SA was the lucky winner and he won himself R2000 for his business.  A handy prize indeed for any Entrepreneur.

The event was also a great networking mixer where Entrepreneurs could network with others in various fields of business.

There was delicious food and also tasty drinks.

Oh yes, they even had a Twitter Wall on the roof.  How cool is that.


The guest speaker was @hisgrys a man who turns Trash into Cash.  He was indeed inspiring and encouraged us all to Think Big.

You can find some interesting tweets all about the event using the hashtag #THUDDurbz

At the end of the event @DrLifesgud encouraged everyone to watch the Ted Talk by Simon Sinek titled ‘Start with why’

Here is a handy link to that video


The  Hookup Dinner happens every Month in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town.
