The television ad was produced by Mann Made Media and directed by Marthinus Van Rhyn, with Mic Mann, co-CEO of SingularityU South Africa, at the helm of the creative direction. It will run on CNBC Africa, targeting the business community, in May 2019.

"Everything we know is changing. We wanted to reflect this in the ad by conveying the message that companies are now moving into spaces they never imagined possible, and this change will only continue," says Mann.

The campaign supports the Exponential Finance Summit, to be hosted by SingularityU on Wednesday, 29 May and Thursday, 30 May at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The summit, which has over 20 international and local speakers, will aim to present a forward-thinking approach to the financial sector to help create a better future for all Africans and help solve various global challenges.
