Interview: SweepSouth co-founder Alen Ribic

In this episode of the podcast, TechCentral editor Duncan McLeod is joined by Alen Ribic, co-founder - with his wife, Aisha Pandor - of SweepSouth, the on-demand home cleaning company that last year raised R30-million in a funding round from Naspers.
Ribic talks about the challenges of starting and running a business with a spouse, how SweepSouth coped with the lockdown, which prevented its on-demand cleaners from working, and the fund that was created to support cleaners during this time.
The fund has already raised more than R9-million and backers include Dell founder Michael Dell and his wife Susan.
The conversation then turns to what SweepSouth has done since the Naspers investment, including expansion into Kenya and the recent launch of SweepSouth Connect, a new marketplace that connects vetted professionals to people needing those services in their local area.
It's a great discussion with the co-founder of one of South Africa's most successful start-ups - don't miss it!
