MTN Business will be hosting a digital masterclass to show startups the ropes on using AI and robotics ecosystem to stimulate the growth of their businesses.

The MTN Business Digital Entrepreneur Masterclass takes place on Tuesday, 31 October, at the Riversands Incubation Hub in Johannesburg, under a new theme: The Digital Industrial Revolution.

This is the second time the event is hosted in Joburg, following the inaugural event earlier this year.

Mandisa Ntloko, General Manager of Enterprise Marketing of MTN Business, said the theme of the conference is apt as the changing digital ecosystem will have far-reaching implications for small and medium sized businesses in the near future.

“The development of electricity and telecommunications have fuelled industrialisation and ushered in an era of connectivity. As an enabler of businesses, MTN Business believes that small and medium sized enterprises should ready themselves for seismic changes that will be brought about by the Digital Industrial Revolution,” she said.

MTN Business believes it is more important than ever for entrepreneurs to embrace new technologies to remain relevant on the ever-evolving business landscape.  

Winners of the recent MTN Business App of the Year awards will showcase their apps in the Masterclass’ exhibition area, and participate in a panel discussion taking place on the day.

Attendees of the Masterclass will also have the opportunity to discover how MTN Business and its partners can help them to grow their businesses through the application of smart, tailored solutions. Google, Samsung Huawei, HP, SiMoDiSa, Blue Robot, National Gazelles and CAT have all joined forces with MTN Business to discuss and practically demonstrate the solutions available to entrepreneurs.

“At MTN Business we are building high performing networks that will ensure that we continue to enable businesses to thrive and brighten the lives of our customers. Tailored solutions that work on capable networks will be the impetus that drives the growth of the SME sector,” concluded Ntloko.
