Johannesburg, South Africa
Integr8 IT, based in Johannesburg, primarily provides information technology services for companies in South Africa, but also serves customers in Botswana, Nigeria, the U.S., and Britain. Founded in 2001, it designs and manages servers and e-mail systems for corporate clients. Employing more than 400 people, Integr8 IT has annual revenues of nearly $20 million and earns profit margins above 10%. The company says its South African "nerve center"—a digital hub that provides off-site monitoring and management of clients' IT infrastructures—is unique in Africa, in that it exports services to other countries while keeping jobs at home.
South African co-CEO Rob Sussman, 35, began his career as a computer technician and is now a trustee or director at several regional IT companies. "The opportunities in Africa are astronomical," he says, especially for using IT to bridge Africa's digital divide. "We could put our services anywhere in the world, but we have chosen to keep them founded and managed on local African soil."
