Suits & Sneakers presents: Ignite (powered by Sasfin)
WHAT IS THIS EVENT ALL ABOUT?
Suits & Sneakers, in partnership with Sasfin, would like to invite you to a business growth and networking event called Ignite. We have invited two guests to speak on the night in the form of Michael Sassoon (CEO of Sasfin) and Allon Raiz (founder/CEO of Raizcorp), and there will also be a chance for attendees to network with each other on the night.
More than anything, we want to ignite a conversation around growth, and we also want to facilitate human connection which was sorely missed during the pandemic. We believe in gathering like-minded individuals who want to grow personally and professionally.
Ignite will be taking place on the evening of Tuesday, 24 May at The Tryst and there is no cost to attend. We will be recording the event on the night and airing the reply a day or two after the event.
WHY DID WE PUT THIS EVENT TOGETHER?
The last few years have been particularly tough for the average South African. Before Covid, the South African economy was stuttering along and then the pandemic, along with the various lockdowns, hurt the economy even more while dramatically impacted the way we all do business.
As we all work toward picking up the pieces, we thought this event could potentially inspire those who attend to be catalysts for growth in South Africa. When we conceptualised this event, we immediately reached out to Sasfin to help us bring it to life and they jumped on board. We love collaborations between big and small business, and we hope you take the time to join us.
WHO IS ALLON RAIZ?
Allon Raiz is regarded globally as a pioneer and maverick in the business incubation industry. He is the founder and CEO of Raizcorp which, according to The Economist, is the only genuine incubator in Africa, and currently supports in excess of 500 businesses.
Allon is the co-founder of the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation South Africa and sits on the advisory and judging boards of international NGOs and entrepreneurial awards. Allon’s passion and focus on the development of entrepreneurs attracted the attention of the World Economic Forum (WEF) which, on 11 March 2008, awarded Allon as a Young Global Leader.
WHO IS MICHAEL SASSOON?
In 2018, Michael assumed the helm as Chief Executive Officer of Sasfin Holdings Limited, a business that has been in his family since 1951, led first by his grandfather, Sydney, and then by his father, Roland.
