Hein van VlastuinThe man behind Abangani Media

Hi there,

I am Hein van Vlastuin. I have been in South Africa since 2011. Originally I came as an academic researcher, and I was meant to stay for six months only, but I decided to stay longer. I love South Africa and its people.

I have been working as a website developer for over 15 years. As a young student I started my own website development company, Heinosoft. After running the company for a couple of years, I had the opportunity to sell the company.

In 2015 I decided to start working for myself again. It is my mission to build an innovative company which makes a positive impact in South Africa. I believe that South Africa is well equipped to build a strong IT industry.

Originally I started working by myself, but currently we have employed close to ten developers and designers.
