Savant's proven track record

The core Savant team is comprised of two experienced and entrepreneurial minds. Nick Allen (BSc Eng, MBA) and Francois Malan (BEng, MBA) have over 20 years of combined hands-on technology commercialisation and incubation experience.

Since taking on our first incubation client in 2007, Savant has worked with 10 early stage technology projects, raising a total of R 85 million for these projects. Of these, only one has not progressed from the R&D stage (due to lack of technical progress). The remaining projects are either successful companies, selling products on the local and international markets, or companies that are in the commercialisation phase.
