It is a pathway to developing mind-sets that will ensure South Africa’s children not only work their way out of poverty, but that they have the tools to stay out.

What has been your Biggest Hurdle?

At First my biggest challenge was pricing the product correctly. I had to re work my financial models and test a few models to find the sweet spot. Now in the growth phase of the business identifying the right partners and opportunities is crucial to my success.
