Proud South African Part of YouTube Success Story

By now we have all heard and considered with envy the recent sale of internet phenomenon YouTube to Google for a cool $1.65 Billion. It was however with amazement and pride that I discovered that A South African entrepreneur was part responsible for the huge success. For those of you who are not familiar with Roelof Botha, he is the son of old Minister Pik Botha, and apart from being part owner of the VC firm behind YouTube, Roelof was also in the team who created and sold PayPal to eBay last year.

This is a proud moment for all of South Africa and a much needed shot in the arm for many South African entrepreneurs who may not always be aware of the light at the end of the tunnel.

Well done Roelof, Your country is proud of you.
