Having graced the cover of Forbes Africa before the age of 30 and being named Entrepreneur for the World 2014 by the World Entrepreneurship Forum, she is already onto the next innovative idea with the launch of Rekindle Learning. In 2013 Rabana founded Rekindle Learning.
“Rekindle provides learning and performance support tools that improve the
efficiency with which we learn and reduce time to competency, thereby ensuring higher workforce productivity and ultimately enabling young people to be more employable,“ she explains. “I believe in the use of the internet and mobile technology to bring transformative change and accelerate development.“
Rekindle Learning has been profiled as a “striking innovation” in the Lions go Digital report by McKinsey. Rapelang believes that “Africa must leapfrog the education and skills gap if it is to emerge as a global leader – this is where technology is critical in shifting our paradigm of thought and fostering new
ways to build functional competency in shorter time.” Rabana also finds time to serve as the chairwoman of Moro Group, an ICT and payment services group, and also Generation Ubuntu, an NGO providing holistic care to children living with HIV.
Coupled with her World Economic Forum accolade of 15 Women Changing the World in 2015, Rabana also sits on the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Council for Software and Society as well as the Global Knowledge Networks Advisory Board. “I navigate a myriad corporate and non-profit worlds, so keeping things quietly elegant ensures I’m never unapproachable, just always polished.”
