Frans co-founded EMSS (now the Alphawave Group) after spending a fantastic 10 years at Stellenbosch University experimenting with play/work/life balance, and eventually obtaining a PhD in numerical techniques in electromagnetics. Originally he was involved at EMSS in all aspects of technology, business development and finances and helped to guide EMSS from a consulting start-up to a Group of companies offering various products and services, locally and abroad.

Frans describes his start-up experiences as roller-coaster rides of tech development in a high-performance environment mixed with business development that involves customers, markets and money. He enjoys being involved in the life-and-times of new ventures, and teaches a 4th year entrepreneurship class at Stellenbosch University.
