In this series, we ask members from our team a mix of random questions, 10 to be exact, and see what’s on their mind – the projects they’re working on, things they like, and some surprising facts from the people that are living investments.

What are you currently working on right now?

Building a web application to streamline the reporting process and enable our teams to work on the fly.

 

What is the most interesting thing you’ve read or seen this week?

How scientists are trying to make use of robotics to better people’s lives. I find it fascinating that in the future people will work alongside robots in everyday life. I could go on…

 

What are you listening to right now?

Black Coffee and David Guetta – Drive (feat. Delilah Montagu)

 

What is the bucket list destination you’re most looking forward to?

Anywhere in Africa for charity work.

 

If you had a time machine, where would you go right now?

Back to 23 June 2013, 21:00. When my daughter was born.

 

How do you keep healthy during your busy schedule?

Drinking plenty of water.

 

What is one thing missing from consumer tech right now?

In some ways we are still far behind from the rest of the world and have a long way ahead to making technology more accessible to people. Also missing is there is not enough tech being developed/manufactured at home. Private equity in SA is becoming a great source of funding and opportunity for many South African creators.

 

What are you working on in your free time?

Currently, I am helping a friend of mine collect old clothes for a charity that helps young people from informal settlements.

 

Teach us something we don’t know about you.

“Ndi Muvenda mubikwa na ive, Ive la vhibva nda sala” which simply translates to “I am a proud Venda”.

 

Finally, can you give us a quick savings tip?

Don’t spend what you don’t have.
