Passion for info tech
Though there are still challenges for the information technology industry, a former Botho University star student is aware that passion knows no obstacles.
His company Mars Mobile is proof of that.
Recently almost everybody has been singing from the ICT hymnbook with the President HE Dr Mokgweetsi Masisi leading the choir.
However, 35-year-old Steven Retshabile’s passion dates back to way before the sector became ‘trendy’.
The Maun native’s enthusiasm for technology and technological solutions led him to study for a Bachelor of Sciences in Computing, specialising in Software Engineering.
“Technology is taking over and is changing our lives and how we do things. I want to be one of those who shape the direction of things,” he explains assuredly.
After completing his studies in 2016, Retshabile sought to improve access to information, reduce cost of advertising and save the environment by reducing the need for paper.
The company develops applications and websites, designs graphics, animations, games, commercials and edits videos.
