With mobile being an important topic on the blog this week, I was lucky enough to get a 2nd mobile related interview. This time, I looked onto the tech and entrepreneurship side of mobile and spoke to the man behind a fast growing, proudly South African smartphone company with the vision to connect Africa with powerful, high quality technology at affordable prices.
Meet David Lindeque, founder and CEO of Zest Mobile, finance student at UCT and my former res and digs roommate too! David has had an extremely busy year, with the launch of Zest’s first smartphone in the South African market – the Zest T1. With high demand, thousands of units sold to date, powerful partnerships, a growing community of Zest super-fans and support from the likes of MyBroadband, TechCentral and Gearburn – it certainly looks like there is a bright future for this smartphone start-up!
I caught up with David during the week to speak about his Zest Mobile journey.
