Nyathi said, "IT is a vision to me, a dream actually, it's something I grew up with. I believe as a young entrepreneur we need to change the whole mentality of buying the equipment outside.

"We can develop our own system, our own software, our own hardware as well. That's what drives me."

The company is currently seeking funding for a manufacturing plant in the country as about 30 percent of the hardware is outsourced.
