Net Prophet 2016 speakers include local tech heroes

Net Prophet

Net Prophet, one of South Africa’s favourite geek events, is back in 2016 with a speaker line-up bristling with veterans of the South African tech space. Some, like Travelstart’s Stephan Ekbergh have been slogging away at the same venture for years. Others, such as Michael Jordaan and Alan Knott-Craig Jr will be appearing in guises outside of the ones they made their names in. Jordaan, now founder at Montegray capital, rose to prominence as the CEO of FNB, while Knott-Craig briefly lit up the scene with his acquisition of Mxit, before going on to found free WiFi NGO Project Isizwe.

The conference takes place on 7 April at The Artscape Theatre in Cape Town with tickets still available online.
