South Africa’s popular flash sales site Daddy’s Deals CEO and all-round serial entrepreneur Eric Edelstein last month at Creative Spark‘s Thought Leader Fridays took us through his journey as a tech and business junkie.

Some other major companies Edelstein backed as a early-stage investor include Springleap and Quirk.

In the session, the serial entrepreneur chatted about his exciting ventures abroad, while also reflecting on some of the dark days when the dot-com bubble burst and his company went bust.
