A 1996 engineering graduate of the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa, Tebogo Mogashoa specialised in telecommunications engineering, systems integration and product enhancement.

Tebogo’s subsequent success in business resulted from his visionary approach to business and the ability to combine strategic thinking with a healthy tolerance to ambiguity. Today, with over 20 years of experience as a successful businessman, underpinned by exceptional entrepreneurial vision and flair, he offers a unique approach to commerce and leadership in Africa.
Over the years he has grown his business interests into finance, property development, fleet management and information communication technology and owns a diversified investment holding company, with interests in commercial property, asset-based finance, factoring and invoicing and development funding.
His objectives as chairperson of the Talis Holdings Group, are long-term and pro-active, and that is why he identifies and invests in the growth sectors of the African economy.
Mr Mogashoa has been instrumental in the creation of several successful business start-ups, and has been particularly successful in the IT and property investment market. He is founder a, owner and/or shareholder number of companies, including:

Tebogo has diversified into agriculture, investing both in the breeding of rare or endangered species of game, as well as in table grape production. In 2015, he purchased the Babirwa Game Breeding Lodge in Limpopo Province, which has yielded exceptional financial results in a very short time. Personally, Tebogo has become actively involved in supporting the game breeding industry in general and directly contributes to the protection of rare species in his role as President of the National Wildlife Ranching Organisation.

In this new world of digitally embedded business, Mogashoa considers synchronicity as the most powerful weapon we have in our arsenal. He believes shared knowledge holds exponential potential for linkages and breakthroughs in ways we are barely beginning to imagine.
