Gugulethu Mahlangu

House Harvest

What does your company do?

Aquaponics startup that grows fish, vegetables and black soldier flies

What is your biggest success?

Winning the first Mpumalanga Green Cluster pitching competition and getting recognition from Anglo American. It shows that Green entrepreneurs are ready to collaborate with corporate for a sustainable future. As a woman born and bred in a mining town, this was a big win

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Access to funding. Aquaponics is a fairly new solution and most people need education on how aquaponics works. This limits my funding options a lot because people sometimes can't support what they don't understand
