I’ve dedicated ten years of my life to the TECH industry. My core values are embedded in my bloodline through my grandfather “Makwa”. I believe that we are the authors of our own stories. In the past ten years, I’ve worked with passionate young people who are focused on working hard towards achieving something great – regardless of generational barriers – to get their big breakthrough.
Self-determination, hard work and, most importantly, the choices one makes in life will push them toward the end goal of the mission. It all STARTS with YOU. Our post-democratic society has created young leaders in the TECH industry who feel they deserve to be heard and be granted success with little effort. The need for transformation in the TECH industry is critical. However, I will push forward and continue to make an impact.
Makwa IT, founded with a vision to take on the industry giants, is ten years old.
Makwa IT remains the only black and youth-owned Cisco Gold Partner in Africa. Despite the economic challenges, we have grown our business by 50% YoY. We continue to invest back in the industry by increasing our headcount by 70% YoY and staying true to our purpose of creating meaningful jobs for the youth of South Africa.
Surrounding myself with people who believe that transformation can be achieved without corruption and fighting hard every day not to be stigmatized by competitors who fear our success.
A massive shout out to Cisco for moving beyond just words, for acting and executing against a promise to diversify the partner eco-system
