The Top 40 under 40 is a showcase of local business talent under the age of 40 compiled by the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber (NMBBC).
William Heydenrych (24) and the Managing Director of Little Big Technologies is one to watch.
A BCom graduate of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan University, Heydenrych is a new entrepreneur, though no stranger to the world of business. “Decisions affecting the family business were made around the dinner table,” says Heydenrych. “My family wired me for business.” Heydenrych is marketing Little Big Technologies – his fledgling IT services and support company – by establishing himself as a tech journalist for local publications.
He believes South Africa is set to witness unprecedented growth in online retail, and is poised to move into this under-serviced area. Heydenrych is a keen sportsman – he credits some of his success to the life lessons learned through competitive sports.
The Mr. South Africa 2012 finalist believes that his company provides him with the perfect vehicle through which to make a difference to business in the Bay. His big plans include the assistance of promising individuals through skills development and exposure to the world of business.
