Emerge, a new podcast out of South Africa, promises to put South Africa’s Top Entrepreneurs and Investors on the world map!


Host, Jonathan Berkowitz, says it’s about time South Africa’s thriving Startup Ecosystem got the attention and recognition it deserves.

With a focus on Tech Startups and the Investors behind them, Emerge aims to showcase the immense talent and opportunities South Africa and other Emerging Markets have to offer.

Meet the leading men and women behind the Top Startups and Venture Capital Firms in each 30-minute episode.

In light of the unemployment rate reaching an all-time high, the South African Government has turned to entrepreneurship to boost job creation.

With innovative new tax incentive schemes like the Section 12J for Venture Capital investors, better distribution of resources and impressive grassroots initiatives, SA entrepreneurship has enjoyed a huge groundswell.

“The Startup Ecosystem is thriving, and amazing things are happening! South Africa is proving that it can go toe to toe against more established entrepreneurial hubs in terms of innovation, mobile solutions and diversity.”

“Ultimately, we want to expose the Startup Ecosystems of the Emerging Markets and the great things that are happening in them. Silicon Valley isn’t the only game in town!” says Berkowitz.
