Peotona’s founding shareholders are entrepreneurs who, as a team, possess significant skills and experience in life and business and are leaders in their field.
The team is bound by a common set of values and passion premised on adding value to our country, to Peotona and its partners. We seek to be part of the broader efforts in our country to drive meaningful transformation that will trigger enterprise development and broad skills creation.
We have a well established Mentorship Programme. Our vision for this is to nurture and develop the next generation of women leaders in South Africa. By and large the qualifying criteria is for young professionals who want to grow and learn.
We have an active mentorship group of approximately 66 young black professionals whom we individually mentor.
Mentorship consists of two simple components: structured individual coaching and joint sessions with all of our mentees so that they can develop peer networks.
Mentees are required to make a commitment to, in turn, mentor other younger women and/or devote time to community projects.
We are passionate about the programme and hope that it will contribute to building a confident generation of business and social leaders who are go-getters and who lift as they rise.
