TESTIMONIALS

“My experience at Tshimologong has been one of learning, being reminded of the basics and remembering to relentlessly focus on value. While attending the accelerator programme we were focused on the facilities management space, which has high barriers to entry. Through the acceleration process we have since pivoted the business model to focus solely on agriculture and driving value to farmers in order to ensure future food security.”
