Emerging entrepreneurs 2021
Their stories will inspire others. We need more entrepreneurs.
6 Oct 2021

The Namibian Business Hall of Fame will be graced by our own Laureate Twapewa Khadikwa Keynote Speaker Twapewa Khadikwa, Laureate of the Namibian Business Hall of Fame, who has never sought formal employment, said “entrepreneurs are a key component of Namibia and Africa’s development agenda and it is with great pride that I take this journey to provide a platform where they can be heard. We have been working extremely hard to ensure that this is not just another business show but one that actively contributes to our growth as a nation and the continent at large.”

Like Twapewa, many entrepreneurs have their own success story that inspires others in Namibia, growing the economy.

GEN Namibia presents to you during Global Entrepreneurship Week, the Namibian Business Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Mrs. Twapewa Kadhikwa, the keynote speaker, is the proprietor of Xwama Cultural Village, the Managing Member of Kadhikwa Chicken Farming, and a director of the uranium exploration company, Bannerman Resources.
