LORA Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship strives to bring thought leaders, men and women who are pathfinders, entrepreneurs and change agents, men and women who have affected the very fibre of our thought processes, who influence our set of beliefs, and engage our mindsets in elements of value.
LORA has invited experienced entrepreneurs to share their stories with us.
On Saturday, 10 March 2018, we are host the legendary Mr. Jabu Stone.
To many South Africans, the name Jabu Stone is synonymous with hair care, especially dreadlocks, which has earned him the nickname ‘Mr Dreads’.
His love of natural hair [and his quest for an alternative to the harsh chemicals women were using on their hair] and his entrepreneurial spirit drove him to create the brand that carriers his name, one of the most enduring and successful brands in South Africa.
How did he manage to create a brand where there was no brand for dreadlocks?
How did he manage to change the stereotypes of how people looked at dreadlocks from unclean hair to something that people today proud to do?
How difficult was it to start the Jabu Stone brand and compete [successfully] with other well-established brands?
To answer all these questions, come join us and interact with Bra Jabu on his entrepreneurship journey.
