Prospective DA head of the Western Cape government, Alan Winde, has launched nearly a dozen businesses, but says that running a province is going to be his greatest entrepreneurial challenge so far.
Alan Winde has done quite a few things in his life – including starting and running at least ten businesses – before entering politics. But now, since being named the DA’s candidate for Premier of the Western Cape, he faces possibly his biggest challenge ever.
“If I become premier, it will be the biggest company I’ve ever run: a R65-billion company with seven million customers. That’s the province. And there are lots and lots of issues besides jobs that face society,” said Winde.
