Face to Face with Success

Nic Haralambous, serial entrepreneur

Motribe was Nic Haralambous’s ninth business – he started his first at 18. His family owned a corner shop in Welkom, before moving to Joburg and working hard to give him a world-class education. This awakened the entrepreneurial spirit in Nic – and it never went away. He is now helping revive the textile industry in the Western Cape, with his new endeavour NicHarry.
