At Xavier Africa – we believe that Africa’s DNA is rooted in innovation, creativity and the refusal to accept status quos that do not serve us. This is evidenced by the fact that we introduced the foundational innovations that make our world what it is today – in fact – we made the first fire, the oldest drawings found in history are on our walls, we solved the first mathematical equations and quite frankly are the cradle of humanity. But in the process, we lost our way – where were we when the first lightbulb was switched on? Where were we when the first computer was switched on? Where were we when the first cameras captured pictures? And as the world goes into the next revolution, we risk being left behind again – we risk never solving the systemic problems that lie in our societies.
In July 2017, our co-founders decided that they were not willing to wait on the sidelines for someone else to come and solve the problems that lie deep in our continent! Since then, the Xavier team has grown to 20 team members (comprised of designers, software engineers, process engineers and digital transformation specialists), has two offices (Gaborone and Johannesburg) and has served dozens of clients across Botswana, South Africa & Zimbabwe.
