ANDY EVANS CONSULTING
Consulting with Purpose
I am a qualified CA (SA) with over 12 years of financial services experience. I have been fortunate to gain significant international experience, having lived and worked in the UK and the USA, and having worked across Africa.
I have a passion for start-ups having been involved in a number of early-stage businesses, helping to set them up from an administrative point of view as well as driving business growth. In the UK, through my Private Equity and Crowdfunding experiences, I was exposed to numerous investments on the cutting edge of innovation and technology. I was able to analyse and understand the rationale behind the investment decisions, as well as following their progress and growth. The joy of working with start-ups is the inherent questioning of the status quo to find innovative ways of doing things and solving problems. My accounting and financial management experience provide a solid base for understanding the greater business risks and what makes a successful business tick.
I returned to South Africa from the UK at the end of 2018 to make a difference and have an impact on this country and the region. There is huge potential in South Africa to make a tangible difference in people’s lives and I largely see its problems as opportunities to make a difference. We are underdeveloped in numerous fields and there lies an enormous opportunity to leverage new technologies to find creative solutions, create employment and offer previously unattainable services to under-serviced communities. This will hopefully contribute to solving some of the greater social issues such as poverty and inequality.
