Keitumetse Pule – For winning the Tech and Innovation prize and being named the inaugural changemaker of the year at the Nedbank#YouthX awards.
“Last year, I took a bet on Legal Standpoint with my co-founder Phemelo Matie and entered the Nedbank #YouthX Awards, a platform to help the youth to realize their potential through access to resources and inspiration. Not only did I walk away as the Tech & Innovation category winner, but I was also named the inaugural Changemaker of the Year walking about with R100k in funding + other incredible prizes.
I’m so excited to be returning this year as a Changemaker in the Tech & Innovation category (under the general sub-category)! Joining me will be 15 other experts.
It always amazes me just how much can change in a year and how leading with courage can move mountains. Can’t wait to play my part in identifying other brilliant young entrepreneurs.” #potentialunlocked
