The Builders Box is destined to become a thriving business hub that will support local entrepreneurs in the community to grow their skills.  With this in mind it was only fitting that the guest speaker, Dr. Lucas Maloi a truly accomplished businessman, shared his insights into what it takes to become a truly accomplished entrepreneur. He shared his story from failures to achievements and encouraged guests to drive their success through commitment and hard work. Representatives from Prominent Paints, PPC and GotGame also took to the podium ahead of the ribbon cutting ceremony, which was followed by celebratory refreshments and networking.

It was a fitting way to officially open The Builders Box Soweto – the first of many more such partnerships. Guests left with the knowledge that Prominent Paints is invested in growing communities through this unique initiative.
