Eric Edelstein is my guest on this episode. He is a legend in the tech industry in South Africa. 15 years ago he was a financial analyst with a solid corporate career path. After a 2 hour chat with a friend about this new thing called the internet everything changed. He resigned his job and has been involved in new tech start ups ever since.
He talks about the Start up culture in South Africa and how it stacks up against Silicon Valley. He also discusses some fantastic new ventures to encourage funding for local tech start ups.
