Yanesh Naidoo is Jendamark Automation’s director of digital strategy, sales and design, selling African-designed, tech-driven production facilities to the global automotive sector.
Mr Naidoo is driven by a passion for technology and continues to identify business opportunities where he can use this passion to solve African challenges, while also exporting these solutions to the rest of the world.
He believes in ‘digital ubuntu’, a truly African approach to 4IR technology that is inclusive and allows more people to benefit from the resulting business gains.
In November 2019, Naidoo was invited to speak at the UN Investment Enterprise & Development Commission in Geneva, Switzerland. There he unpacked the topic of “Structural Transformation, Industry 4.0 and Inequality” from an African perspective, highlighting the work Jendamark is doing with its Odin digital manufacturing ecosystem to create a more efficient, competitive and inclusive manufacturing sector.
