Yolandi Griesel, originally from Bloemfontein, has been chosen as one of two finalists from South Africa to participate in the global version of Entrepreneur X-Factor, together with twenty other entrepreneurs from across the world.
Griesel is a perceptive entrepreneur, writer, dancer, idea-generator and original thinker. She is the founder and owner of Angeles Wellbeing & HR – a business that specialises in labour legislative compliance and human resources turnaround strategies.
Entrepreneur X-Factor is a combination of global one-day events held in 25 cities, pre- and post-event online information and a Masterclass after the final.
Each event decides a heat winner, based on one minute ‘pitches’ from the participants. The winners from each heat play off in an online final once the event series for each year is complete.
The competition aims at finding entrepreneurs with unique and energetic abilities – or the X-Factor – across the world.
Currently, Griesel is sitting in 5th place and can possibly make it to the top before the closing date. The winner will be announced on 13 December 2013
