OUR STORY

David Seinker, CEO of The Business Exchange, is a talented serial entrepreneur and successful businessman, who identifies with the struggle that other like-minded entrepreneurs experience on a daily basis. Have you ever wondered what successful people do differently? A clue to this baffling question has a lot to do with David’s empathy towards entrepreneurs – a direct result of him having “walked a mile in their shoes”.

Today, through The Business Exchange, David assists these entrepreneurs to overcome the same funding hurdles and challenges of accessing networks that he himself has faced. The Business Exchange, David’s own unique and innovative concept, has moved rented office space into another dimension.Tenants of The Business Exchange have access to and benefit from David’s enormous network of investors, powerful South African business connections as well as his ties to international networks and institutions.

Choosing to become a tenant of The Business Exchange is choosing more than just a Landlord – it’s choosing a unique business experience accompanied by a wealth of opportunities.

David Seinker – CEO

David’s career started out at a property group, where he managed a portfolio of assets valued at half a billion Rand and a team of over 200 staff. After eventually deciding to leave the real estate sector to start his own entrepreneurial journey, David built a unique online platform to connect entrepreneurs with a group of high net-worth individuals.

Whilst successfully concluding deals for these businesses to the value of approximately R100 million; David, an entrepreneur at heart, identified that there was a great need to establish shared office space that would offer small business owners both flexibility and access to funding and networks.

Shortly after successfully approaching one of his Investors with his latest idea, David established The Business Exchange, which now has nearly 6000 square metres of office space available in Johannesburg. The group is busy opening 3 new properties across South Africa and they plan to expand throughout the rest of Africa, providing workspace and resources for Africa’s next business leaders.
