Sable CEO involved in mentoring SA-based businesses

by Sable International | Sep 24, 2012
  • On Wednesday 21 November, the Mamba Mentors investor pool will be giving South African-based businesses an opportunity to source funding.

    Reg Bamford, Sable International’s founder and CEO, is part of a small group of influential South African expat investors called the Mamba Mentors. The Mentors also consist of Haji Chana, founder and chairman at Adenue and managing partner at HcCapital; James Durant, owner and director of Blue Sky Publishing and Bluegrass Digital Limited; and Adam Laird, co-owner and director of Homeflow Ltd and director at Blue Sky Publishing. Typically, they help small- to medium-sized, South African-based businesses that are looking for financing and exposure to the UK market, or business advice from potential investors. 

    Earlier this year, the Mamba Mentors viewed a series of 12-to 15-minute presentations from South African entrepreneurs. These companies submitted their business proposals, and once they passed certain basic prerequisites and proved they had exceptional business ideas, were presented with the opportunity to face the Mambas.

    The next session will have more of a tech focus, as entrepreneurs will be coming to London care of the Silicon Cape Initiative, a non-profit, community-driven entrepreneur movement based in Cape Town – as well as the Economic Empowerment Department for Economic Development and Tourism Western Cape.

    We are a professional services company that specialises in cross-border financial and immigration advice and solutions.

    Our teams in the UK, South Africa and Australia can ensure that when you decide to move overseas, invest offshore or expand your business internationally, you’ll do so with the backing of experienced local experts.
