The small boutique, led by award-winning Chief Product Officer Robinne Burrell, has been focusing heavily on the market since joining MIT's Solve consortia. Since then, Redflight has dedicated a substantial percentage of their efforts to supporting South Africa's future leaders to thrive amidst fast advancements in technology and to provide access for women and girls of all socio-economic backgrounds to fully participate and prosper in today's global economy, "As technologists, we often find ourselves focusing on the U.S market, but South Africa has a wonderfully passionate and committed youth population that can thrive from the new age of STEAM-centered technologies. From coding to entrepreneurship and virtual reality, there's a profound opportunity for the inclusion of South African youth", says Robinne on the topic of why South Africa is such a critical market.

Redflight is also working with various local organizations to scale the workshops into a national program for the advancement of technology for African youth.
