Lebo Gunguluza is an entrepreneur, turnaround strategist and motivational speaker. He is a Dragon on Dragon’s Den South Africa. Born and raised in Port Elizabeth, he went to study at University of Natal in Durban although, at that time, he had only R60 to his name. Gunguluza aimed to be a millionaire before turning 25. He got there late (he was 27, one of SA’s youngest self-made black millionaires) through a series of entertainment events. He lost his fortune in 1999. He describes it as “the darkest time of my life”, yet he learned invaluable business lessons.
Lebo Gunguluza formed the Gunguluza Enterprises & Media Group as part of a strategy to achieve his goal of becoming a billionaire.
