We are thrilled to be joined by Allegro Dinkwanyane, as we discover what it takes to build a thriving career in the entrepreneurial sphere.
A social entrepreneur at heart, Allegro is passionate about giving back to the community. Central to her work is the grounding belief that young people, when afforded the right resources and motivation, can make their dreams come true and help make the world a better place. Her NPO charity foundation Orgella Helping Hands hosts annual events around South Africa which run various initiatives ranging from feeding and clothing the orphaned, homeless and underprivileged, to inspiring young people through motivational talks, education and career/business seminars.
In 2017, Forbes Africa recognised Allegro as one of Africa’s leading young entrepreneurs by listing her in the prestigious “30 Under 30”, cementing her as a young force to be reckoned with in the business world. Among her impressive list of accolades, Allegro has also been recognised as one of the 100 Most Influential Young South Africans, she has received the “Exceptional Women of Excellence” award from the Women Economic Forum in New Delhi, India as well as a “Footprints of Africa” recognition award for making her mark in Africa and creating employment opportunities for the youth.
