July 14, 2014

South Africa, Business and Entrepreneurship, University of Wisconsin–Stout

Justin Beswick has over seven years of experience in technology startups, primarily in the renewable and sustainability arena. He has launched and coordinated Google’s technology incubator in Cape Town and completed a marine expedition up the East Coast of Africa. He is currently scaling up his existing companies and working on getting a documentary of the marine expedition edited and broadcast.

He is also actively involved in growing communities that foster entrepreneurial mind-sets, skills and idea sharing that lead to action. He does so by channeling his time and efforts as a World Economic Forum Global Shaper and curator of TEDxCapeTown, and through the Sandbox-network.

He received a Bachelor of Science in biotechnology and also studied financial analysis and portfolio management at the University of Cape Town. Upon completion of the Washington Fellowship, Justin intends on further developing his companies and completing the documentary aspects of his marine expedition.
