The pandemic and resulting lockdown restrictions have had devastating consequences for many startups and small businesses. Being a sales and marketing platform for over 100 self-employed creatives in South Africa, Kamers Makers knew that they had to adapt, and quick!

In this episode of the Entrepreneur on the Grow podcast, we join their Chief Creative Officer, Wanda du Toit, on a journey of discovery, creativity and entrepreneurial resilience.

Wanda chats to Jared about the passion and purpose behind the much-loved Kamers Makers brand, explains how the business has managed to stay relevant for over 18 years, and discusses the advantages of being a small business in times of uncertainty. Finally, she talks us through the incredible success of their online shows, and shares exciting plans for the future.
