South African television and radio personality Mmasea Petje made her television comeback earlier this year as the brand-new presenter of Igtnition TV’s popular series ‘Garage Gold’ and as the new season comes to an end.
Mmasea has also revealed that she is embarking on an exciting new business venture as she continues to cement herself as a hardworking, eclectic and diverse media personality.
Today, Mmasea announces that she is part of two exciting new business concepts – the theHoods.co.za, a complete e-commerce platform for small business which launches this month and Drivably VR which has its soft launch on the 1 July.
Drivably VR is an exciting new passion project for Mmasea which combines cars, future tech and virtual reality in an incredibly exciting and unique way. An interactive immersive experience and virtual dealership platform designed to put the consumer behind the wheel on their own terms. The concept was created by the team at dfive Lab, an innovation hub that thrives on bringing ideas and dreams to life through their unapologetic approach to using technology to help change the world.
“The future belongs to people who aren’t afraid to think outside of the box and colour outside of the lines. I always thought the only way I’d be able to do all the crazy things that get me excited would be if I was just an actress or entertainer – you know, embody the character of a doctor one day, an ambassador for this brand the next day, a housewife the next… But really, as a millennial, I think our generation has the space and opportunity to do it all,” says Mmasea.
“The minute I saw an opportunity to collaborate with an incredible team of like-minded people, I had to go for it. I have always fully embraced technology for all that it has to offer – so being able to create things software and technology that is useful for everyday life is so incredibly fulfilling,”she adds.
