I am a social impact entrepreneur with extensive experience in building social ventures at scale. I have played a leading role in transforming RLabs into an award-winning global social enterprise from the humble beginnings of a community project in Cape Town. RLabs is a global movement that has inspired replication of the model in 24 countries and has impacted more than 25 Million people since its inception.
I have been the driving force for RLabs Women, which serves as a support network for women-led businesses, and founded Junk.fund – an innovative crowdfunding platform that invests in female entrepreneurs.
My latest venture involves becoming an Angel investor and co-founding RLabs Angels, where we make investments in high-growth startups across Africa.

*I serve on multiple boards in an executive, non-executive, and advisory capacity.
*Winner of the Inspiring Fifty South Africa 2019 Award, an initiative that aims to increase diversity in tech, by boosting the visibility of female role models in STEM.

I am extremely passionate about our continent – Africa, its people, and all we will still become.
