Shifting mindsets

Featured Quotes
I've always been passionate about helping startups who are crossing hurdles I crossed years ago, IAN presented an ideal opportunity for me to do so. Through my interaction with the fellows, I've learnt a lot and gathered inspiration from seeing young people step up passionately to immerse themselves in solving some of the continent's biggest challenges. Super proud of them for taking this journey and I’m honored to be associated with IAN

As a South African transplant to Silicon Valley, I believe the work IAN is doing is important, and exciting. And as a seasoned brand strategist, I know that a strong brand—one that's relevant, differentiated, and imbued with purpose—has the power to unlock IAN's potential and broaden your impact. I'd like to help and be a part of that
