Company Snapshot

Glen is the young entrepreneur behind i5, a business solutions company built around the idea of taking products produced by Microsoft and making them better — much better. A Microsoft-gold certified partner responsible for the CRM deployments of First National Bank, Hollard Insurance and Sasfin, among other large South African organizations, i5 is an innovative IT provider offering a wide range of business solutions and services. The company has evolved from a Microsoft-based “development shop” to a “solutions company,” and today i5 stands out as a developer of its own value-added intellectual property within the Microsoft universe.

Endeavor and i5

In addition to benefiting from a local advisory board, Glen has participated in a G-Lab project with London Business School and attended an Immersion Tour.
