Meet Kagiso Maloma, Founder and CEO at Genius Level
By profession he's a CGMA (Chartered Global Management Accountant), and by night a startup tech entrepreneur, with a focus on building large online communities to help connect like-minded individuals.
He founded his company Genius Level back in 2014, the initial business was an online blog which serves as an ideas hub were anyone is allowed to contribute so long the content ads value.
Fast-forward to today, they have expanded and now have brands such as:
- Atimeme (A complete humor/meme social media app on Playstore, has over 18K app downloads and has been trending at #1 on the Play Store)
- Mzanzibiz (a black business listing platform available on IOS, Play Store & Web - launching on youth-day this month)
- Prohangout (a dating site for your professionals, Play store + web) and they also have social media pages with over 1 million worth of followers.
Currently and going forward, their plan is to get more geeks on their team, secure funding to help take their startup to the next level, expand continental outreach in terms of our platforms, add awesome features & improve security on their apps.
They are going big - and hope to add to and change the tech space in SA for the better - and in the process inspiring others by making them see that its possible.
