Hookup Dinners

The Hookup Dinners are a series of growing entrepreneurial networking initiatives with a global vision that build a culture of entrepreneurship. Founded by Dr Lifesgud, they are produced in collaboration with continental startups.

Hookup Dinners give startups from across the country a platform from which to connect, engage and contribute to each others’ success. while also providing entrepreneurs with a corporate interface to corporate South Africa.

The concept, which takes on a dynamic, yet relaxed and informal dinner format, was brought to life in 2012 and has since evolved into a market place where organisations find entrepreneurs with whom to partner in their economic empowerment programmes.

The first Friday of the month, startups from across South Africa and Africa gather at The Hookup Dinner to network and explore collaborative opportunities.

Hookup aims to have an active, vibrant, connected, well-networked and economically active tribe of 1 million startups across the African continent by 2020.
