Rapelang Rabana2

Founder and CEO, Rekindle Learning

She has been named to Oprah?s 2012 ?O? Power List, one of Forbes? Africa?s Best Young Entrepreneurs 30 under 30, is a World Economic Forum Global Shaper, and has been mentioned by CNN as Africa?s ?Marissa Mayers?. However, this Botswana born serial entrepreneur?s greatest achievement is not in the awards or the accolades, impressive as they are. She has managed to epically disrupt the tech space by introducing high end innovative software through Yiego Communications, an innovative Cape Town based company that developed some of the world?s earliest mobile VoIP applications.

Rapelang recently founded an education technology company-Rekindle Learning, which employs mobile devices in tailoring methods of learning to each and every one of its users. The learning applications apply the latest learning pedagogies to ensure that learning actually happens and knowledge is built up, right at the palm of the hands. Rekindle Learning was profiled in the McKinsey report Lions go Digital: The Internet?s transformative potential in Africa as a ?striking innovation? in mobile learning.
