Ashley Hendriks (Bursary Management)

Having dealt with students, parents and organisations as Head of Department of an Electrical Engineering Division at an FET College, Ashley Hendricks realised the difficulty students and organisations had in finding each other in terms of bursary programs. He decided to develop what he likes to call “an educational dating site”, an online educational profiling platform aimed at effectively linking students and organisations together in a cost effective manner.

It was a smart idea and a brave move, but it has certainly had its challenges. Ashley says that it was a “long hard slog”, but worth it in the end. His ultimate ambition is for his company to deliver on their promise and to make a difference to those who need and deserve assistance to meet their goals in education. Keeping his focus on that vision has really kept him going.
