The South African ICT sector is rapidly evolving as disruptive new technologies enter the market and there has been a groundswell of support for the “Start-up” sector through a variety of initiatives.
The StartUp Grind initiative is one such initiative which has encouraged entrepreneurs to break into the ICT space and they host a number of exciting events across the globe.
Startup Grind Pretoria’s Director Monde Zuma in May 2018 celebrated Female Founders by hosting Mbulelo Sochifa & Noluvuyo Mpekelana from ICT On Heels. ICT on Heels is a networking and empowerment platform created for women in ICT.

The close-knit network that this platform make it possible for young women to get guidance and stay motivated despite the daily challenges that face women in a male-dominated industry.
