“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,
are the ones who do.”

value for money

“Invention is not enough. Tesla invented the electric power we use, but he struggled to get it out to people. You have to combine both things: invention and innovation focus, plus the company that can commercialize things and get them to people.” Larry Page

Throughout the ages, every innovation that has propelled humanity forward began as a mere idea in the inventors’ mind. It is only by nurturing that small seed, by tinkering with it – whether in a laboratory, in the field, or in a workshop – that the idea can grow into a meaningful solution to society’s challenges. Such is the RDI pursued by the SNSETinstitute. Some ideas might be small, some big and others astronomical, but in the end the ultimate aim of each technology is to support Africa’s people in their pursuit towards economic prosperity through innovations. SNSETinstitute has embraced the power of innovation for many years and we believe that many of the world’s problems facing humanity can be solved through cool, key and new technologies. Our portfolio of amazing technologies will shift the world forever. We believe that biggest opportunities lie in the world’s problems because this represents fertile ground for SNSETinstitute to create insanely disruptive solutions.

The advent of the new revolution is here with its disruptive technologies which includes mobile internet, cloud computing, advanced robotics, artificial intelligence, driverless vehicles, renewable energy, 3D printing, the automation of knowledge work, genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and the internet of things. Everything from money, to oil, to water, to the way people work is getting smarter. This means we live in a world where digital intelligence is becoming embedded not just in individual things, but also across entire systems, impacting everything from traffic flows to electric power to the way our food is grown, processed and delivered. Scientific breakthroughs draw interest from curiosity. However, without a partner willing to commit in bringing the technology to the marketplace, many potential benefits of these breakthroughs are likely to end in the laboratory.




the SNSETinstitute founder

Everything about Sir Stuart Ntlathi defies belief and, in that way, he resembles many innovators and great scientists. Sir Stuart Ntlathi is an innovator/inventor (15-in-1 microwave oven, an electronic Vuvuzela and an auto shoe polisher) and the founder of the Stuart Ntlathi Science, Engineering & Technology Institute [SNSETinstitute].

Amongst his 54+ awards in science, engineering and technology he is largely celebrated for his signature award, the Johnnie Walker Nation’s Greatest Inventor. He has been working tirelessly for two decades to help promote science,

engineering and technology innovations to South Africa’s young generation. He is truly remarkable in his achievements; with this and a few signature inventions and innovations under his belt.

Undoubtedly the pride of the City of Matlosana/Klerksdorp, Sir Stuart Ntlathi is a visionary young fellow who started his institute when he saw a gap in his township community, Jouberton in Klerksdorp at the age of thirteen [13]. As with most disadvantaged areas in South Africa, scientists, engineers, technologists etc. are few and far between.

In order to address the skills gap, he took a view that young people should lead the debate and create opportunities for each other, instead of waiting for adults to “rescue” them. He relishes being a leader and an inspiration to other youths. Ntlathi’s institute helps to create and strengthen the public understanding of science, engineering and technology in communities. The institute has grown rapidly with over 30 000 youths participating in various programmes by 2015.

Sir Stuart Ntlathi thinks as an owl does, in total response to being alive. He is naturally blessed with the gift of youth, education and innovation development and he has genuine scientific experience and high intelligence to develop his heaven-sent talent. As innovation runs in his veins, so does a strong awareness of our times and place, and the people who, like him, give expression to these. He generously brings new life to the work of other upcoming innovators by setting it to his talent, adding passion, warmth and tenderness of his innovative mind. The 15 in 1 Microwave, known as the MarvelWave Cuisine Series is the peak of his achievements, a wonderful range of originality, creativity, inventiveness and innovation celebrating creativity was at the heart of the struggle for success. He is indeed an international treasure. The cherry on top is that very soon he will be setting off to space.
