About us


Core Beliefs
Alcoholics go to AA…entrepreneurs go to The Hookup Dinner. Dare to be different. Become part of the Tribe. Connect. Engage. Contribute. That’s what The Hookup Dinner is all about.


How it Works
The Hookup Dinner presents networking and a pitching platform for startups and entrepreneurs with a difference. Get-togethers have a limited number of seats available and are by RSVP only, to maintain an intimacy at our events where quality connections can be made. RSVP beforehand to reserve your seat and if we’re full, be sure to get your name on the guest list early for the next dinner!


Company History
Founded in November 2012 by Selebogo ‘Dr Lifesgud’ Molefe, The Hookup Dinner launched its current informal networking and pitching model at Ramen noodle bar in Braamfontein, Johannesburg.

The Team
Our tribe consists of some colourful and vibrant personalities. You can read more about us on the Team Bios.
