CEO at Namola
Originally from Namibia, Pete has an M.Sc.Eng from Stellenbosch for his machine learning thesis in Automatic Music Transcription. After getting his first taste of start-up life at Cellfind, he founded 6th Line, a mobile software consultancy, in 2007. From 2010 to 2014 he took a detour by co-founding World of Avatar, founding Boom.fm (a music streaming community platform) and running product at Mxit. He re-booted 6th Line in May 2014, where a contract to develop the software for the mobile safety app Namola inspired him to jump on-board Namola full-time as CEO in 2017.
