About this book:

At 25, Alexandria Procter became SA's youngest startup tech wunderkind. During her annual break from UCT in 2018, she came up with the idea for DigsConnect. Deeply affected by the violent student protests which swept university campuses in 2016, Alexandria created a website that would address the tumultuous student housing crisis. DigsConnect has subsequently transformed from being a local student startup, to catapulting into the global fourth industrial revolution. A deeply inspiring story.
