Finding the right pivot to kickstart growth and unlock success for your startup

Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2018 | Time: 4.30pm – 5.30pm | Venue: Nedbank Stellenbosch University LaunchLab.


The Stellenbosch Digital Meetup, powered by LaunchLab, presents Gys Kappers. Gys is the co-founder and CEO of Wyzetalk, South Africa’s leading mobile-first workforce engagement company.


Wyzetalk had to pivot a few years ago, and it was hard, but we never could have imagined it would lead to where we are now.


Established in 2012 in Technopark, the company has since been listed in the Top 13 African Tech Companies to Watch by CB Insights (2014), recognised among the Top 10 African start-ups by CNN (2015), referred to by TIME magazine as a Silicon Valley disruptor (2016), named a finalist at the FNB Business Innovation Awards (2017), and this year, launched digital communications solutions for some of their largest clients incl. Spur Corp, Pick n Pay, Woolworths and Sasol.


Gys’ interest in employee engagement and open innovation came about as a result of his masters thesis during his Executive MBA journey through UCT, following a successful 18-year career building the largest privately owned Concrete Masonry Business in South Africa.


Gys is a dynamic and driven entrepreneur, mentor and an active member of the Young Presidents Organisation (YPO) as well as high-impact entrepreneur organisation, Endeavor.


We’re excited to welcome him and you, to this LaunchLab Talk event. As always, it will be closed by drinks and networking with like-minded individuals.
