Profile of Rekindle Learning

Rapelang Forbes Cover

Traditional training often has a limited impact on employee performance – especially in the areas of customer service quality, sales and business performance, and complex business processes and rules. The problem is that existing learning activities and tools are not designed to support employees when it matters most – on the job where they apply their knowledge – well beyond the formal training environment.

Rekindle Learning provides learning and performance support tools which increase employees’ capacity to learn and reduce time to competency, ensuring higher workforce productivity and enabling young people to be more employable.

Rekindle Learning was founded by technology entrepreneur Rapelang Rabana, who was listed on Forbes Africa ‘30 under 30 Best Young African Entrepreneurs’, is a Global Shaper of the World Economic Forum and was selected an Entrepreneur for the World by the World Entrepreneurship Forum.

Rapelang’s entrepreneurial journey was launched when she co-founded Yeigo, an innovative Cape Town based startup that developed some of the world’s earliest mobile VoIP applications. She co-founded the company right after graduating from the University of Cape Town with a Bachelor of Business Science (Computer Science) degree. Yeigo created ground-breaking applications and services that took advantage of the internet, mobile and cloud computing technologies to tackle the cost of communication. In 2008, the Swiss-headquartered Telfree Group of Companies,a pioneering next-generation telecoms operator, acquired a majority stake in Yeigo.

Within the product range of Rekindle Learning are KnowledgeBooster and Visual Advisor, acclaimed learning tools for today’s digital age.
