A bit of history of the this inniative is:
Net Prophet was started in Cape Town, South Africa by the RAMP Foundation – a non-profit entity created by the RAMP Group as a means for social investment within the local Internet based economy.
With government backing education and development in the areas of science and technology, RAMP Group recognised the need to build a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation, particularly in the area of web-based business, essentially aiding those with the right aptitude for ‘Making business $ense of the Internet’. The name Net Prophet was decided on, as it would give credence to the quality of our local industry leaders (as an added bonus, it doubles as both ‘Prophet’ & ‘Profit’ when spoken of!).
Take the most innovative/successful/creative/ambitious thinkers and entrepreneurs in the Internet space, and ask them to share their stories, ideas and predictions for the future in a format that is fresh, relevant and engaging. The result: Net Prophet.
We will be tweeting and blogging from the event, so stay tuned!
