Hlubi and Gareth kick off Future CEOs this week by speaking to J.J. De Castro Maia, the CEO and founder of Bjala and an Urbanist. During this edition of #StartupOfTheWeek, we talk to him about his journey working as a property developer in the inner city of Johannesburg, to then founding Bjala, a Johannesburg-based urban renewal company focused on affordable low-cost housing and innovative urban program. The company is community centric, incubates local entrepreneurial initiatives and directly invests in education and community projects within its areas of urban focus.
