Cloud Atlas is worth one million US dollars and has had fund growth of 15% in six months.

The company directly employs five people and has indirect employment partnerships in South African and across the Continent.

Madiba says his fellowship at the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation and studies at Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute awakened his entrepreneurial drive.
