Psybergate was started by four passionate software engineers in 1999. The company’s sole purpose was to deliver world-class software solutions to companies across South Africa.
The company’s first offices were located on the 10th floor at Wits University moving a few years later to larger space on the East Campus. By 2006 Psybergate had grown to 22 employees and, in 2007 it acquired a Cape Town based company, with its main focus being the higher education sector, with North West University as its major client; thus, furthering its connections with the top national universities. In 2003, Psybergate took additional offices at the University of Pretoria, before moving to Parktown in 2007, where they are currently based.
The company was founded by a leadership team with backgrounds in teaching and lecturing, and therefore it was natural progression that Psybergate would build its culture upon the importance of learning and mentorship.
Psybergate and its leadership team have always had a close relationship with the universities in South Africa. As such, its leadership team continue to invest in these relationships with the intention to help grow the South African software industry.
Today, Psybergate is run by Fazel Mayet, CEO, and Chris Naidoo, Technical Director. As the original founders of Psybergate, both Fazel and Chris remain closely involved with everyday operations and continually engage with all employees on a one-on-one basis. The company culture is made rich by these inter-personal connections and deep commitment to proving world-class software through extensive learning and mentoring. something both Fazel and Chris are deeply passionate about.
