Investec empowered 36 aspiring entrepreneurs in the Young Professionals Revolution. In October 2019, Investec Private Banking, in partnership with Qhubeka and enke: Make Your Mark, handed over 40 bikes to 36 aspiring South African entrepreneurs, who will be starting up small businesses within the Kagiso community, west of Johannesburg.

On the night, 192 young professionals, in 40 teams, came together at Investec in Sandton for a marathon 18-hour session to pool their skills and talents to envision and map out scalable business ideas that could run on a Qhubeka utility bike.

A total of 36 business ideas were pitched to the local entrepreneurs, who have now finessed and adapted these business plans to needs of the community as the take ownerships of their brand new Qhubeka bikes.
