Tshepo The JeanMaker on METRO FM

Friday 3rd of November our favorite Joburg Jeanmaker, Tshepo was live on Metro FM in The Drive show.
Tshepo joined the Drive team in their mission to DRIVE listeners into inspiring & motivating stories, informing and keeping them up to date with what’s happening in the wide world, while DRIVING them to their destinations. On top of that, it’s hosted by Mo’Flava, the incredible Dj phenomenon who has been in the industry for over 8 years.

Besides both having a ball, the two discussed The Threads Programme. Yes, Tshepo revealed the behind the scenes of the accelerator. From how the recruitment process went down to the hoops he went through to stand out from the 400+ applications received.

Tshepo let us in on the challenges a young entrepreneur in South Africa has to deal with. Getting a seat at the table and surviving within the business side of fashion isn’t easy.  From sourcing quality materials to manufacturing, the road is paved with hurdles.

So applying for the Threads programme seemed like a logical step to help him scale up his business. Taking his brand to the NEXT level and equip him with a toolkit to overcome the challenges on his way to success.

Which just happens to be Threads main objective.
