Digital Economy

“South Africans are tired of cynicism, negativity and political squabbling. They want to do something, other than the volunteerism campaigns, they do not know what that something is” -Mr. Tim Modise – former Chairman of Proudly South African.
Soweto is a significant participant and contributor to the economic growth of South Africa. It represents the previously disadvantaged communities attracting both local and international businesses, offering unlimited business and investment opportunities.

Why SOWETO?

It is the largest black residential area in South Africa,
a product of the apartheid government’s policy of group areas act. Soweto is a
multicultural and political rich community on the periphery of Johannesburg.
Soweto has always been regarded as a haven of all sorts of criminal activities; yet
eKasi carries both oral and written history that defines our newly transformed
South Africa.
Soweto is one of the few areas in the country that has a full representation of all
South African languages and to complement that, eKasi boasts with its own slang
(language). Like New York in the USA, Paris in France, Rio in Brazil so is Soweto in
South Africa.

program in Soweto in the following hospitality areas;
• Office Administration

  • Soweto Champopo Festival – VIP

    The Champopo festival creates the basis for popular and unknown brands to initiate and educate the audience about their various well-seasoned product lines in an ideal setting. This encourages sponsors to get their brand familiar with not just the big players in South Africa but also around the continent. This is by far is the most exciting opportunity to build relationships and win brands over and crack open markets unsown.

    “Guests will be informed and be well educated about sparkling wine, but also entertained in a beautiful setting. Just to add what sets the Champopo™ Bubbly & Lifestyle Festival apart from the rest is simple: ‘taste’. The Champopo™ guarantees opulence and bespoke lifestyle adventure like no other entertaining both novice and aficionado alike,” Mahanke further explained.

    The festival promises to be light-hearted and well polished, much like the bubbly reception. This event deems to be a foundation for so many more memorable, enjoyable times and great vibes brought to you by Champopo.
