Inside Innovation
and Value Creation

Realizing your potential through awareness of self

The greatest competitive advantage you have in business and in life is yourself - yet how can you leverage an asset you do not know? Your capacity to lead yourself to fulfillment in your life is often intimately tied to how far you have gone, down the hard road to self-discovery.

Rapelang shares her personal entrepreneurial journey, from a 14-year old with too many questions, to the founding of her own companies, and being awarded as a revolutionary innovator and entrepreneur - all of which could only have been achieved through an understanding of herself.
The Human Response to the 4th Industrial Revolution

The fourth industrial revolution, 4IR, promises far reaching socio-economic benefits while also running the risk of accelerating job destruction ahead of creation. Without increased entrepreneurial and innovative involvement, the gap between the forerunners and passive observers will continue to widen. Rapelang redefines education systems and models of assessing human ability in order for individuals to continue to contribute beyond the automated world.

"Thank you so much for your talk, it was so inspirational. The scholars were particularly taken by the directive to make your own choices and to persevere in the face of adversity, along with the examples of your experience doing both. Most of our scholars face quite a bit of adversity, and are often encouraged not to make their own choices, so it was great for them to hear that"

- Jay Kloppenberg, Founder & CEO, African School for Excellence, March 2015
