I am passionate about private and public partnerships as a vehicle for socio-economic change/development. I have a passion for social-entrepreneurship and constantly associate myself with activities and/or social groupings that have an agenda which focuses on improving the livelihoods of rural populations. This passion led me to founding Brastorne, which is a company that develops solutions that are profitable and have high social impact and target those at the bottom of the pyramid. I have since won the pitch agri hack competition and the app has over 300,000 users.
Hey Dorine – thank you for your mail and apologies for responding later. We started in the enterprises in 2014 but became operational and began trading in 2016. As you can imagine, expansion is hectic. In terms of expansion across countries, we have signed exclusive contracts with multi-national mobile network providers and therefore we have access to 24 african countries. The real issue is our capacity to deploy fast enough as we will need local partners who are much more familiar with the culture and regulations in the respective countries. Best wishes, Naledi
