Hannes Geldenhuys

Hubble Studios
CEO
Cape Town Area, South Africa
Hannes Geldenhuys is the founder and CEO of Hubble Studios, a leading Digital Learning company based in Cape Town. Hannes'​ core skills are in digital learning consulting, organisational development and IT service delivery, and he counts his experience across the education, financial and telecommunications sectors.

His first experience with digital learning came in 2004, when he used open-source technology to create a real-time, interactive, virtual classroom, hosted on a custom learning management system, years before that technology had become the norm. This left him with a strong interest in the burgeoning e-learning industry and the opportunities it presented for organisational growth, which he followed with interest over the next few years.

Seeing an opportunity to merge two areas of interest, Hannes founded Hubble Studios in 2012, in partnership with Sam and Rob Paddock, founders themselves of premier online education company, GetSmarter. Today Hubble Studios is a world-class Digital Learning Agency, and serves leading academic and corporate organisations across the globe.

Hannes is intent on focusing on initiatives that contribute to South Africa's economy, and along with managing Hubble Studios, he actively participates in small-business mentoring through the Shanduka Black Umbrellas incubator programme.

He believes that learning, expressed through technology, has an incredible ability to make a meaningful impact for people, and is always on the lookout for more opportunities that speak to this belief.
