Ndaba Mandela, grandson of the late Nelson Mandela, is the SAGE South Africa Ambassador. Ndaba said, “At Africa Rising we believe that entrepreneurs are at the centre of the modern economy, and that progressive African entrepreneurs can help restore the glory of the African continent. It is up to us to instil a proud, self-starting, proactive mindset in the youth so that they can be equipped to build their communities from the bottom up. That’s why we say that Africa Rising is A State of Mind. That is why SAGE is an important partner for us and I am proud to be associated with the initiative.”
