Tech Facts

The Story Behind Geekulcha

A familiar face at meet-ups for tech entrepreneurs all over Guateng, the idea for Geekulcha came about when Fortune realised the same atmosphere of innovation, inspiration and collaboration around technology was missing from campus life.

Where young people should have been meeting, coding and hacking their way to stellar careers, rote learning an poor teaching quality were the order of the day.


The seed for Geekulcha was probably the INNOvatorz.IT Facebook page Ngoveni created for TUT students. The page became a communal space where where people posted about their IT problems and found answers.

From a few members at TUT, the page grew to over a thousand active members across the country and now has over 3 000 members.
