Entersekt is a South Africa-based financial technology business focused on authentication and mobile security solutions.

In the past five years, RMI has established itself as the preeminent equity partner to some of South Africa’s most well-known entrepreneurs in the financial services and insurance sectors, including Endeavor South Africa board chairman Adrian Gore (CEO of Discovery) and his fellow Endeavor South Africa board member Willem Roos (Joint CEO of Outsurance). We hope that – as the 1st Endeavor Catalyst investment in South Africa – Schalk, Dewald and Entersekt will follow-in the footsteps of these South African entrepreneurial icons!
