Entrepreneur Uses Creative Problem Solving to Overcome COVID-19 Challenges
The COVID-19 crisis has changed the way we work, presenting both a new set of challenges and a unique opportunity for business and technological innovation. No one understands this better than Nkosana George Mazibisa, a 2016 Fellowship Alumnus and current information secretary for the deputy mayor of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. This past year, Nkosana created Asakhane, an online virtual platform that offers key teleworking and digital marketing support to aspiring, new and established small- and medium-sized enterprises.
Providing users with online access to virtual offices, Asakhane enables firms to reduce the risk of allowing COVID-19 to disrupt their daily workflow. Asakhane reduces land and energy consumption by providing a platform that alleviates the need for an in-person workspace and reduces COVID-19 anxiety by providing tools to help individuals overcome stress and balance work.
