Challenging the status Quo

Who we are

TSIBA is a unique social enterprise that shows what's possible when business education invests in people. The TSIBA social enterprise includes a Business School, Ignition Academy, and Education Trust working together to return highly sought-after people and successful small business enterprises. We seek ambitious, purpose-driven people and emerging businesses who want to take South Africa forward. We are passionate about the transformative impact of education as a catalyst to unlock the best of what humans can be.

The Ignition Academy specializes in activating and running bespoke skills development and entrepreneurial support programs for their corporate partners. TSIBA Ignition Academy (Pty) Ltd builds on and supports the work of TSIBA Business School (registered as TSIBA Education NPC), as far back as 2007.
