The founder-owners of GUDGU — an Afrikaans acronym for Goedheid Uit Die Grond Uit or Goodness From The Earth — will receive R650,000 in cash paid out over two years as they achieve the milestones laid out in their pitch, and a bursary of R350,000 for a full two-year Raizcorp incubation programme as part of this year’s Engen Pitch & Polish Competition.

Michael Avery is joined by Raizcorp CEO Allon Raiz, Pieter du Plessis and Viljoen de Kock.
