Following a sold-out workshop in Johannesburg and in Polokwane I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR makes its way to Durban this Saturday.
Our guest entrepreneur is Gil Oved, South African entrepreneur who is the co-founder and co-CEO of The Creative Counsel, South Africa’s largest advertising agency. He was one of the Dragons on the hugely popular television reality show Dragons’ Den South Africa. In 2016 Oved was chosen as the first “Shark” on the new series of Shark Tank on M-NET.
Gil Oved started up a business during the dot.com era, but went bankrupt. Like a true entrepreneur, he moved on to a new business venture, the starting of The Creative Counsel. The company has grown exponentially, through the acquisition of new clients as well as other businesses in the advertising and marketing sector attracting the attention of Publicis Groupe who bought the Company in September 2015. TCC operates under Publicis Africa Group.
