From fixing PCs, to servicing Fortune 500 companies: Meet entrepreneur Tabi Tabe

Serial entrepreneur Tabi Tabe is the founder of Tabi Corporation, a leading provider of cloud computing and software services.

Tabi Corporation provides IT consulting services and software solutions to corporate companies across the globe.

Tabe lived between Cameroon and Nigeria before moving to South Africa 20 years ago.

He fell in love with maths and science at a young age and went on to study IT at varsity.

Tabe sold and fixed computers to help fund his tertiary studies while living in Cape Town.

He's always been persistent, despite initially struggling to find employment due to prejudice over his race and nationality.

Tabe later worked as a consultant and then finally started his own ventures after upskilling himself abroad.

I had to figure out what to do with what I had.
