Ofentse's Biography

He has started multiple businesses since moving to SPU, selling watches, clothing, ice cream, and student cards. He started having an interest in tech when he met his friend and co-founder, Bryne Chibaya. They started ayobanet.com, which was a marketplace for African designers and craftsmen to sell their products. They did not succeed at that and had to shout down the project. The pair then started Varsity Deals as they saw that there wasn't a marketplace that allowed students to sell 2nd hand books to other students.
