Hello I am Robyn!

My passion is pushing hardware and tech growth to better the world.

A few ways I have achieved this so far is by starting KATO, a company which focuses on product development to solve real world problems in order to create a better world. I founded and run some of the most influential tech events and communities in South Africa which create exposure to and connect people who are pushing the boundaries of tech, as well as bridging the class and gender gap. These include #TechTalkCPTArduino Cape TownModern Alchemists and Women in Tech Cape Town. I am a partner in Curiosity Campus, which taught people all sorts of tech skills from Python, building a robot to creating VR environments.

In 2016 I was listed as one of Mail&Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans and granted a Shuttleworth Flash Grant. In 2015 I was invited to be a guest lecturer at MIT and to attend the World Maker Faire in New York. I completed my Masters in Interactive Sound Installations at the Sonic Arts Research Centre at Queen’s University.

My aim is to connect inventors around the world, to show them that they can build their future.
