While it was lucrative, it didn’t fulfil him. He insisted to be an entrepreneur. So, he took the plunge and started Legazy Technology Conferencing. Legazy is now a subsidiary of the By Design Communications Group, and was acquired after Zuko managed to secure a $1 million letter of intent from one of Africa’s largest TMT (technology, media, telecom) companies for the hosting of a new Web summit conference in South Africa in 2018.
