The only South African blog written for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs.
This blog is about entrepreneurs thinking BIG.
It’s about a little guy with an audacious dream, conquering his fears, overcoming challenges and taking on giants. These are the superheroes of South Africa, the unsung heroes – and Ideate is the forum to celebrate them. We try to keep the tone light and fresh, current and sometimes controversial. We also like to give stuff away. If you’d like to advertise on this blog, or give stuff away, please email us at info[at] ideate.co.za and we’ll send you a sheet with some ideas on how to get on the map using Ideate’s 20,000 monthly readers.

Yolandi Janse van Rensburg writes about social media, marketing, life and, of course, cars. We say “of course” because Yolandi is nuts about anything on 4 wheels. Besides being the Heavy Chef girl at World Wide Creative, Yolandi runs Autofemme, a blog about cars, as a business on the side.
