Description

Dan Olofsson: IT Magnate at a Turning Point: Abstract

Dan Olofsson: IT Magnate at a Turning Point is a case study by Viveka Christierson, Claire Beswick and Sibongile Maduna.

“We cannot just sit by and do nothing!” said Sebastian Olofsson to his uncle, Dan Olofsson, a Swedish IT billionaire and owner of a private game reserve in Hluhluwe (northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa). It was February 2003, they were both at the reserve and Sebastian had just returned from a guided tour of the vicinity that had exposed him to the dire poverty in the area and the human suffering there caused by HIV/AIDS. Olofsson concurred. He had been thinking the same thing for some time. He had bought the land for the lodge in 2002, initially as a private retreat for his family and friends. He had been deeply affected by the need in the area, but what was it that he could do to make a difference?
