Listen to the full conversation from CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

Business growth specialist Pavlo Phitidis says companies that explore solutions for South Africa's social challenges will be the big brands and entrepreneurs of the future.

The team at IT School Innovation are visionaries; they've built the platform. Being both an idealist and a pragmatist develops market makers - people who create massive new opportunities with big goals behind them. They're solving an important issue in South Africa.

Pavlo Phitidis, business growth specialist

Company founder Jacobus Liebenberg says their IT solution was built specifically for the South African environment and added that the company takes into account every different school context.

It's more than just delivering the books to the learners. We're not making it digitak because it's the fashionable thing.

Jacobus Liebenberg, IT School Innovation founder

To take their business to the next level, Phitidis advised that IT School Innovation should offer analytical information to schools, teachers and parents about the learning habits of pupils and also consider the role of parents in the education system.

The Nedbank Business Accelerator with CapeTalk, celebrates entrepreneurs who build the businesses that South Africa needs.
