JOHANNESBURG - A small team of Cape Town entrepreneurs who invested R22 000 in 2006 to start up a fledgling business recently saw a phenomenal return on their founding capital when they sold their business to US based organisation Ecolab - a major global provider of technologies and services to the water, food, energy, healthcare, industrial and hospitality markets.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if any of the founders still reside in South Africa?
Fasie Malherbe, Paul Rowett and Tim Nel sound South African but
Dale Den Dulk... What nationality would that be?

They could be from anywhere. Den Dulk sounds like a Dutch surname but Afrikaans speakers are now found in Oz, NZL, USA, UK, France, eastern Europe, etc.
