JOHANNESBURG - A team of University of Cape Town (UCT) students have come together to form a start-up company, Zaio.
The start-up assists student developers to build an information technology skills profile through coding challenges and practical experience, hopefully helping them to land their dream job and thus become financially independent.
At the same time, the Zaio platform provides other start-ups with access to affordable web and app development.
The team comprises of seven students: Mvelo Hlophe, Thando Hlongwane, Mihlali Xozwa, Harjot Singh, Akhil Boddu, Ntuthuko Mpaku and Asif Hassam, all of whom have an interest in technology and entrepreneurship.
Zaio was formed in October 2017, when Hlongwane realised that one of the biggest issues he faced was not having any practical experience.
