I'm Aisha, a South African startup entrepreneur and co-founder of SweepSouth, an online platform for ordering and paying for home cleaning services within a few minutes.

At SweepSouth, we connect professional, experienced and insured cleaners with homeowners, and in doing so bring technology to an industry that has remained unchanged for decades. We are also passionate about helping to address unemployment in South Africa by connecting domestic work professionals with work opportunites. For our customers, we provide a convenient, easy and trusted service to get their homes cleaned, so they can do better things with their time.

SweepSouth has been featured in IDG Connect, the Saturday Star Newspaper, Nunnovation and TechMoran and has done interviews with Radio 702 and Ballz Visual Radio.

I studied at the University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa, where I completed a PhD degree in Human Genetics and a Business Management certificate at the UCT Graduate School of Business. When I graduated in 2012 I became the first student to graduate with two different qualifications on the same day. I also worked as a management consultant with Accenture before embarking on my startup journey.

I received a South African Women in Science Award in 2011 and was named in the Mail and Guardian's List of 200 Young South Africans in 2012.
