CAPE TOWN - When one thinks of an entrepreneur, the general idea that comes to mind is a middle-aged individual who has worked tirelessly to create a successful business. However, we reveal that young South African's have changed the game and hail in as successful entrepreneurs, under the age of 35.
We reveal the list of young South Africans you should look out for:
1. Sandile Shezi
2. Bheki Kunene
3. Allegro Dinkwanyane
Fun fact: Dinkwanyane initially started her blog, Orgella as an entertainment blog which then evolved into a fully-fledged public relations, charity and property division.

5. Vusi Thembekwayo
Fun fact: This venture capitalist was forced to drop out of university due to financial constraints. He then searched for a job for six weeks, to no avail.
He went on to utilise his international networks and cellphone to recruit learners from South Africa for jobs in to UK and Australia.
