In a world of growing inequality, one cannot divorce themselves from the reality: How we perceive the poor is arguably the most critical social perspective we hold today.

Entrepreneur and Young African Leader, Nolo Mokoena is a final year student majoring in Economics at the University of Pretoria, with a co-specialization in Agricultural Economics and Management. Previously chairperson of the Young Economists Society and Vice Chairperson of the faculty of his university, his key interests lie in innovation & strategy, mediation and dialogue, youth advocacy and agricultural reform.

Aside from his entrepreneurial ventures and initiatives, he hopes to grow as a creative solutionist- making a considerable contribution providing alternative solutions in both private and public sectors of society.
