Mindworx, the innovative business services consultancy, and Rainmaker Solutions, the UK-based digital and business transformation specialist, have joined forces to accelerate the transformation of African businesses for the digital age.

Since 2010, from offices in London, San Francisco and Johannesburg, Rainmaker has been helping organisations embrace technology to thrive in response to market disruption. Working collaboratively, at the heart of the toughest business challenges, Rainmaker has been implementing clever solutions to help organisations evolve for success.

Mindworx has been delivering innovative business and empowerment advisory services throughout South Africa since 2002, helping clients achieve operational excellence with tangible results. Mindworx also provides executive search, resourcing solutions and a training academy focused on digital skills that gives high potential graduates the tools they need to lead in the digital age.

The partnership between Mindworx and Rainmaker combines global innovation with local expertise. It provides clients in South Africa and the wider continent, with customer-first solutions delivered by small, high-impact, experienced teams.

Jonah Naidoo, CEO of Mindworx, said: “Together, Rainmaker and Mindworx can accelerate the work we’re doing with even the most tech-savvy clients, instantly putting them on a global footing. Rainmaker’s expertise will allow us to introduce new offerings, like design sprints, which give organisations the ability to produce a prototype of a product or service idea within a week. Nowhere else in South Africa is this available.”

Jan Joubert, CEO of Rainmaker Solutions, commented: “We are excited to be partnering with Mindworx. Both firms share an ambition to challenge the status quo and help clients plan, implement and embed lasting change.”

Both firms share a belief in the power of technology as a force for good. Mindworx has a Level One BEE Scorecard, while Rainmaker has established its own charitable foundation, supporting projects that empower young people through sport, education and entrepreneurship, including the Kwano Cycling Academy, in Kwanokathula.
