US State Department & South Africa Embassy Launch Speaking Tour with Forbes30Under30 Entrepreneur Christine Souffrant Ntim 

Johannesburg, South Africa, July 14, 2017- Award winning Forbes 30 Under 30 global speaker and startup ecosystem expert, Christine Souffrant Ntim will conduct keynote talks and workshops on personal branding and startup development in Pretoria, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town for a two-week tour. A delegation from the US-South African Embassy will also be in attendance.


Governments across Africa are bringing Christine’s expertise to students, local entrepreneurs, and corporate officials due to her previous tour with the US Embassy in Nigeria where she shared close to 100+ different free resources to build and scale a personal brand and business in 30 days.

She returns now to South Africa to bring Silicon Valley tactics based on the successful launch of Africa’s largest online accelerator– graduating 100 African startups every year. The program is now consulting governments and corporations around the world on how to launch their own customized online accelerators.

“The future is digital, so startup ecosystems in emerging markets need to take advantage of that with programs like this one” says Christine Souffrant Ntim, “we launched digital accelerators for entrepreneurs of Africa and the diaspora to close the resource gap and diversify global startup success stories”.

The free digital accelerator program provides all tactics on product development, marketing, growth hacking, funding, press hacking and more. The next cohort launches in October 2017 with key speakers from Y-Combinator, Tech Stars, Facebook, Google, Draper University, Singularity University at NASA, and more.

The keynote sessions to be presented are “How to Build and Monetize your Personal Brand”, “100 Secret Hacks to Scale Your Startup Globally”, and “How to Leverage Ai, VR and Exponential Technologies to Scale Your Company in the Future”.
