Join us for the next great Stellenbosch Digital LaunchLab Talk with Keri-Leigh Paschal, Executive Director and co-founder of Nation Builder, an initiative within the Mergon group. Keri will be speaking on how digital technology can inform and build our nation.
Mergon is an entrepreneurial private investment group that exists to impact lives and equip others to do the same. The Group consists of Mergon Invest, the Mergon Foundation and Nation Builder. Mergon established Nation Builder as an initiative that inspires and equips custodians of capital to enable greater positive social impact.
After completing her post-graduate studies in Biochemistry (specialising in HIV) at the University of Pretoria, as well as qualifying as a high school educator, Keri-Leigh moved to London and joined a start-up business in a marketing and development capacity. Returning to South Africa Keri joined a multi-national biochemical company, Sigma Aldrich, to fulfill a similar role in marketing and development, as well as initiating and leading a national drive, to raise awareness for Autism in South Africa – igniting a passion to utilise marketing and business to raise social awareness and investment.
Keri is passionate about seeing businesses, communities, civil society and government work together towards building the nation. Nation Builder offers resources, tools and a community to help ensure that social investment is as effective as possible towards securing the prosperous future of South Africa. Here is an example of what happens at the Nation Builder Collabs: VIDEO.
We look forward to welcoming Keri and hearing about her journey.
