He has spent the last 13 years striving to ensure that as many people as possible get access to a valid, signed, and retrievable Will using the scale that technology can bring. He launched www.smartwill.co.za in 2018 and South Africa’s first full white-labelled Will in 2020. He is driven by personal experience of the troubles caused by not having a Will in place and the level of financial risk exposure people have without being aware. His goal is to change the world one Will at a time.
