The one thing I took away from Bonbillos incredible program is my new found confidence in global thinking... Throughout the whole program I was constantly surprised at how much I was learning. Proof that there is no one standard way to become a successful entrepreneur.
Really awesome enjoyable experience. High learning environment mixed with a lot of fund and travel. Highly recommended. We had a lot of high impact, rapid fire rounds of lectures, activities and a pitch/demo day to potential investors. We also visited local startups: LULA and YOCO who shared their journey on how they built their companies. Every startup needs to go through a programme such as this where it gives exposure to international content on how to build a business with a mix of local startup learnings.
Luntu Ayabulela Quntana,
The Bootcamp far exceeded any expectations I had. The quality of the content and the people delivering was top class and I feel I grew in ways I did not know I could... Collaborating with other start-ups and seeing the synergies in our respective journeys brought about great learning.

Working with BonBillo has been an amazing experience...
I really liked how they pushed me towards the right direction about the problem we are trying to solve. I also got a chance to learn a lot about my country's history and I also experienced the beauty of South Africa.
Entrepreneurs, like the friends I made during this program, will be the ones who will shape the future. As for Medyear, we found out we could meet a niche need within the HIV/AIDS narrative... I had the best time and came away with so much. Big heartfelt thank you to the BonBillo team and SBC team, and others (Oliver, Papa Trill, etc).
