Co-Founder and CTO, Voyc
Motsoaledi and her co-founder moved their HQ from South Africa to the Netherlands in 2020 to take advantage of the Dutch government’s investment into the startup ecosystem.
Her message to little girls from her home town in Polokwane, South Africa, and small towns everywhere is:
“The glass ceiling is thick – Break through it anyway.
The journey is tedious – Walk it anyway.
The dream seems ridiculous – Dream it anyway.”
