“I want to say that even though I did not win, the TT100 awards and logo has within months brought me so much luck and good fortune to the effect that :
·         TIA is talking to me about many things at present including matters such banking for entrepreneurs, technology partnerships with India to increase our tech IP in SA (in fact I’m partnering with the winner CampusLabs to bring their IP here to our country), searching the globe for innovations we can bring the IP to SA,
·         I won the contract to train Jhb COJ first ever digital entrepreneurship programme,
·         I won a seat on Ernest and Young global winning women programme for 2015,
·         Nominated on BHP Billion awards 2015, and
·         Made the second round on the Sanlam entrepreneur of the year 2015
“Carol Varga [Administrator at TT100], I can’t thank you enough for sending me that first message about participating in these awards, I laughed at the time never understanding the impact of technology innovation in SA but now, something exciting finds its way to me every day, I am so happy and I thank you so much for your encouragement, btw we even used Kirkpatrick at one of our events in SA recently, seems the whole of India is willing to take their chances in SA now –Thank you Prof Bennie for your lead to Kirkpatrick, she is truly a lovely woman.
Amazing things are happening ever since the TT100 awards day! I treasure my certificate and logo-it’s priceless!! I am not a business women chasing dollars, I am single parent who has had the most difficult life trying to make headways so when I say I thank you, be sure that I mean it wholeheartedly!
You are all really special people!!”
