Net Prophet 2014

Africa’s Largest Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Start-up Event, Net Prophet, is happening again on May 21, 2014 in the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town.

This is what Net Prophet does:

Take the most innovative/ successful/ creative/ ambitious thinkers and entrepreneurs in the Internet space, and ask them to share their stories, ideas and predictions for the future in a format that is fresh, relevant and engaging.


This year’s speakers include Jody Ford (VP of Marketing at Ebay), Nicole Yershon (Ogilvy), Simon Dingle (22Seven/5FM), Rob Stokes (Quirk) and more. Headline at this year’s conference is the controversial WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, who will stream in for a live interview from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

As in 2013, PayFast is again involved as the Net Prophet Bursary facilitator: a scholarship that helps fund student education in the tech/IT industry. The aim is to get R90,000 in crowdfunded donations through the donation platform we helped build.

We’re also very proud to be a sponsor of the event and if anyone wants to meet up during the breaks, you can reach out to us @PayFast 😉
