BizM8 is committed to give a helping hand to start-ups, educational institutions and NPOs/NPCs that need support from our service offerings. Our founder, Mr Thabang Phala, holds a strong belief that collaboration is the new currency. That is to emphasise the importance of cementing our organisational values which are entrenched in the African philosophy and culture of Ubuntu.

In African culture, Ubuntu is a concept that represents a sense of community, humanity, and interconnectedness. The word “Ubuntu” comes from the Nguni language of Southern Africa and can be translated as “I am because we are.”

Ubuntu emphasizes the importance of relationships and encourages individuals to value and respect one another, to be generous and hospitable, and to work together for the greater good. It also promotes forgiveness, empathy, and compassion as essential qualities for maintaining harmonious relationships within the community.

Our strategic aims, values and objectives for our CSI initiatives are based on the:

  • Promotion of social entrepreneurship;
  • Promotion of African values and philosophy;
  • Promotion of collaboration amongst previously disadvantaged communities;
  • Promotion of education; and
  • Promotion of art, technology and innovation.
