Antoinette Prophy is a South African based entrepreneur, she’s grown an ad agency from the lounge of her mother’s house to a company employing 60 employees with a footprint in East Africa. She’s been at the losing end of a deal — and lost R2-million, and she’s gone through a nightmare no entrepreneur wants to face, liquidation of their first business.
Other than the actual business challenges, Anto told stories about situations she went through as a woman in the world of business.
Her woman-focused business accelerator 88 Business Collective, has its origins after the failure of a handbag venture Prophy pursued after liquidating her advertising agency — proving that failure in entrepreneurship should not be treated as taboo, to be shunned and not spoken about, but instead should be an important experience to be shared and celebrated.
Hi Grey, I’m looking for Anto’s podcast, but I can’t find it.
