In 2008 my nature reserve development went into a nosedive as the Great Recession took hold of the world. I had to reinvent myself (quickly) and looked at the internet as the next great wave of the future. I created Inspired Business Ideas, a network of champions committed to making a positive difference on a global scale. The core philosophy is "Enterprise with a Social Agenda, a mind for profit and a heart for community." Like having fun, making funds and doing good all wrapped into one.

Four years later the dream is starting to become a reality as the first of my ventures, Motivate My City, gains traction. There are many more in the pipeline.

So I designed a way to make a sh*%tload of cash by eliminating the unfair disadvantages of poverty. It's called "Triangles of Power" and it's now part of my Empowered Capital strategy.
Now imagine Cape Town filled with people empowering people where every Capetonian, rich or poor, with a dream and the will to pursue it, has equal access to empowering education. That's Motivate Cape Town!
Motivate My City is the most popular venture on VC4Africa, a global platform connecting entrepreneurs and investors.
