KEMPTON DJ, radio and TV personality Tshepo “DJ @Large” Kgapane is hosting the second annual Youth Money Circle (YMC) event.

The event aims to educate young people about money, savings and investments through real and unconventional group dialogue and debate, while drawing inspiration from the experiences of others.

“The Youth Money Circle is not a seminar, conference or workshop, but rather an informal and unconventional dialogue and debate around youth wealth accumulation, savings and financial literacy through the sharing of information and ideas,” Kgapane explains.

YMC events target people between the ages of 16-30, young professionals, graduates, entrepreneurs, ‘influencers’ and students.

The topics to be addressed include Cryptocurrencies and evaluating new investment vehicles, steps to achieving financial freedom, the power of collective buying of assets and investing on the JSE.

Various speakers, who are experts in the financial industry, have been invited to the event, including Warren Ingram (award-winning financial planner, author and finance commentator), Easy Equities Brand Manager Carly Barnes, Tshepo Moloi (CEO and founder of Stokfella App) and Nicolette Mashile (social entrepreneur and property investor).

Kgapane (26) grew up in Edleen and is a radio broadcaster, TV presenter, entrepreneur and DJ. He hosts the Stoep992 show on YFM on Saturdays and Sundays and is the presenter of the Soweto TV show Babize Bonke.

Since launching YMC last year, Kgapane has achieved a number of things, including launching the YMC website, writing blog posts, some of which have been published on Huffington Post SA. Kgapane did a podcast with Moneyweb and was also invited to speak at the 2017 Money Expo in Sandton in July.

He was one of their youngest black speakers and also exhibited YMC at the event.

This year’s event will take place on September 16 at the Standard Bank Incubator, 5 Cradock Avenue, Rosebank. Entrance is free but space is limited so make sure to book your seat via the Youth Money Circle website at http://youthmoneycircle.co.za/.
