Dreams come true at Nedbank
Entrepreneurship is not just a matter of coming up with a bright idea. It happens when someone is consumed with the desire to sell that great idea to the rest of the world. And the “sell” part sounds so easy.
But Alan Shannon, Head: Relationship Banking Sales at Nedbank, is very familiar with the fiddly bits that demand attention to detail that trip up many a fancy money-making idea.
“We see a lot of technically savvy people coming through our doors who don’t realise the kind of commitment and attention to detail you need when starting a business. They start to dip into the entrepreneurial market while still keeping a foot in full-time employment. But to get real traction, you need to invest in your idea,” he says.
