Bongani Sithole
Managing Director at Founders Factory Africa


Bongani Sithole is a tech entrepreneur and Computer Science post-grad who, since 2004, has built three technology businesses from the ground up. 

Before joining Founders Factory Africa (FFA), the last company Bongani founded — Black Beard Technology — built tech businesses on behalf of corporates. As FFA’s Managing Director and Chief Scale Officer, Bongani now steers the company's day-to-day operations while helping portfolio startups structure their product builds and finesse their global scale-up strategies. 

He is a strategic thinker, bridging the gap between business needs and technology, and is passionate about helping brands grow their competitive advantage in the market. Bongani has worked with some of Africa’s leading brands, such as Standard Bank, MTN, and BMW. 

Bongani believes there’s always a different approach to solving problems and loves to quote the Zambian proverb which says, “The worlds of the elders do not lock all the doors; they leave the right door open."
