Katlego Maphai to be Startup Grind Cape Town’s next speaker

After the successful first Startup Grind Cape Town 2017 event, it’s time to head into the next one for the year. This time, one of Yoco‘s co-founders, Katlego Maphai, will be chatting.

The event will follow the normal Startup Grind structure where Maphai will be asked about his early life, studies, and how he got to where he is right now. After the talk, which is hosted by the organisation’s global community director, Guillaume De Smedt, the audience will be allowed to ask their own questions.

Before co-founding Yoco, Maphai was part of the incubation team at Rocket Internet, which built Jumia.com.ng. He’s also an ex-management consultant and MNO specialist from advisory firms Delta Partners and Accenture.
