Blackfox launching today at #findaba17: disrupting Africa's tech ecosystem


Imagine if you had access to a suite of tools at no cost to help you minimise expenses and drastically improve your revenue. What if these tools included an on-the-ground assessment by senior resources to show you exactly how to improve profits in a very tangible way?

If this sounds too good to be true, you should join the much-anticipated launch of Blacfox at the Finance Indaba Africa (14h00 in Boardroom 5 on 13 October 2017). This is the first service model of its kind in Africa. If you want to boost profits in 2018 in a revolutionary way, then you cannot afford to miss this session. One lucky attendee will win a free baseline assessment worth R100,000 just by attending the session.

"Early in my career at Microsoft, I learned with certainty that healthy businesses have the power to create healthy societies," says Blacfox founder, Kerushan Govender. "It's no secret that technology can and does rapidly organise and clean up businesses and societies. By proliferating technology as much as possible, we are improving Africa one business, one city at a time."

To make this a reality, it is necessary to create a means to help business leaders embrace technology. The older generation of business leaders, those with vital institutional memory, need to champion technology adoption as much as their younger counterparts. This is why Blacfox is here. It has the single goal of helping all business leaders champion technology transformation by helping them make effective technology decisions. "Today's business leaders have the power to take Africa into a brand-new tomorrow by investing appropriately in technology. It's too bad that not all leaders realise they wield such power," laughs Kerushan.

Its no surprise that business leaders sometimes resist these interventions as they cling to more traditional systems and methods. To break the status quo, Blacfox has introduced a unique business model where it does not charge for the professional services it offers its clients. This is an indeed a revolutionary means to expedite the process of technology adoption and transformation on the continent. "We know we want to accelerate change in Africa. This is the reason I returned to my home after many years abroad. We can achieve this by helping business leaders adopt technology appropriately, " says Kerushan.
