Former Dimension Data CEO, Brett Dawson invested R10m in social discovery and messaging platform known as Gather Online. The social platform has been connecting people who have shared interest in a specific topic. The differentiator (from Twitter and LinkedIn) is the discussion ends at some point as every topic has a time limit. Gather Online has been operating in South Africa and Australia and is looking to expand into Europe, Asia and the US. Brett Dawson is part of third seed funding round which was well oversubscribed.
