Marnus Broodryk was born and raised in the Free State, South Africa. Raised by a single mum, his 'rags to riches' success story reads like a movie script. He started washing cars and cutting grass to pay for school himself, followed by 18-hour days to get through university. A short decade later and Marnus has built one of the most valued and successful accounting firms in South Africa, The Beancounter, and was the youngest investor ever to be on the international television show Shark Tank. Marnus is one of the best-known entrepreneurs in South Africa and has become a thought leader and advocate for small business owners. Through his own platforms he regularly shares information and hosts various events to connect established entrepreneurs. He also speaks frequently at both entrepreneurial and C-Suite events, helping audiences understand the intricacies of success.
