“Tshepiso Malema has a passion for entrepreneurship and gaming. By the time he was 16, he started his own company, Gamer’s Territory, which has helped bridge the divide between video game access and township life.
As the world surges into the fourth industrial revolution, Malema is determined that the youth in South Africa’s townships are not left behind. His company is now providing coding and robotics classes to children in disadvantaged areas, exposing them to technology and a free-flowing entrepreneurial spirit.
More recently, Malema founded the organisation Tshepiso Malema Speaks, which equips the newly matriculated with the necessary entrepreneurial skills to find success. “The entrepreneurship space taught me to take risks and I cannot take risks if I still wanted validation,” he said.
Malema teaches those around him to have agency and build self-belief through actions that have an impact on society and the great potential of South Africa’s youth.”
You can become a successful entrepreneur, no matter what age you are, no matter what educational qualification you have.
