Amazing things Marcel's made
I put together an entire university campus in 6 months. I helped to turn around an ailing startup from the brink of bankruptcy to a profitable enterprise in months. I ran a team of 40 engineers, designers and content creators to build a new marketing website for South Africa's first tech unicorn. I took an edtech company into additional countries.
