By | Uncategorized

 

PROWEB organised the Property Acquisition and Investment Opportunities Breakfast event for women on the 4th of May 2018, at the Rainbow Towers Hotel. This came after the realisation that there are still many challenges facing professional, executive and business women around collateral and investments. Furthermore, women are not well informed on how to plan their investments, thriving investment property markets, importance of crowd funding to purchase some investments in their own name amongst many other critical issues, hence the focus of the event. The presenters were Vanessa Vos Pam Golding, Dr Grace Muradzikwa, MD Nicoz Diamond and Miriam Zisengwe, head of SME Business Development, Nedbank. The event was attended by over 110 professional and business women. The event was supported by Telone, Barclays Bank and Cairdre.
