Tlhalefang Moeletsi is the founder of Mebala, a premium luggage brand that combines finely crafted bags with the freedom of individual customisation.
“Start small, experiment a lot and be adaptive. In everything that you do, it is important to always surround yourself with a good support system,” he says.
Moeletsi’s greatest desire for his brand is to contribute to the reindustrialisation of South Africa and offer an abundance of work opportunities in a sustainable way.
He also works as a senior associate at Genesis Analytics, where he contributes to research that aims to unlock economic opportunity, particularly for women and young people.
With bachelor, honours and master’s degrees in economic sciences from Wits University, Moeletsi is a businessman and innovator by heart. He later returned to the university in 2017 as a sessional lecturer to share his extensive expertise.
Instead of waiting for everything to be perfect or near perfect for you to start, just start.
