About This Recipe
Sizwe Nzima is the founder of Iyeza Health. The inspiring Khayelitsha-based entrepreneur reveals the intricacies of creating a sustainable business in new markets - and taking on the competition in well-established categories.
What You'll Learn
While collecting medicine for his grandparents at a local clinic, Sizwe Nzima realised that people in disadvantaged areas in Cape Town shared a similar problem - they didn't have the time nor resources to collect chronic medicine from public health facilities that are often far from where they live. In this recipe, we learn how Sizwe, a young passionate entrepreneur from Khayelitsha founded a health logistics company called Iyeza Health. Iyeza means both ‘it is coming’ and also ‘medicine’ – a fitting name for a company committed to delivering essential, life-saving drugs.
