South Africans Doing Great Things

Zuko Tisani is one of the world's top 350 handpicked entrepreneurs under 25

Zuko Tisani is the founder of a company called Legazy Technology Conferencing. Tisani is also part of the world's top 350 handpicked entrepreneurs in the world under 25, according to the Kairos Global Society amongst other South Africans such as Ludwick Marishane & Siya Xuza.

They run an initiative for the best South African startup (SMME) to get an opportunity to become a global business. Their local startup ecosystem is challenged with three fundamental issues, which is access to funding; finding the needed appropriate skills and access to a larger consumer market than what exists locally.

About: Zuko Tisani Tisani is a UCT graduate and a a Global Fellow of Kairos Society. Kairos is a society for top entrepreneurs under the age of 25, with 350 hand-picked young entrepreneurs, scientists, developers and makers from 50+ selected countries. Tisani graduated from UCT and went straight into a promising management consulting career.

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.
