David has been an entrepreneur since the age of 19 when he started his first business while at Varsity. Years later, at only 22 years of age, a failed business venture placed him in debt of R150 000. This experience did not sink his entrepreneurial spirit. Instead, he headed for the cruise ships to save up money with an action plan of getting himself out of the debt.
He has since made major strides in business and having triumphed over those struggles he is now known publicly for his successful business interests in Vida e Caffe, Rikki’s Taxis and Mr Delivery. Takealot.com recently acquired a controlling 60% stake in the business-to-consumer delivery company.View All Mentors
