In addition to local mentorship with several board members, Lemao received key introductions and marketing services. Endeavor mentors helped secure new customers so that business was able to achieve sustainable growth and profitability, and helped renegotiate contracts with major customers. Lemao has also benefited from Immersion Tours and an Entrepreneur Summit.

Lemao remains an active participant in the Endeavor network, serving as a powerful role model in South Africa.
