Lorraine Steyn

Lorraine Steyn founded Khanyisa Real Systems (KRS) in 1987, at the age of 24. She has continued to grow KRS since then, and now has over 50 technical staff in Cape Town and Gauteng. Lorraine was the first woman outside of America to be a Delphi Certified Developer, and has continued to stay abreast of new technology even as the business grew.

She completed a Bachelors of Business Administration from Unisa just before her 50th birthday, part of her belief that constant learning is an important aspect of life. KRS runs a self-funded internship for 12 developers each year. Lorraine believes that software companies need to help to build the skills pool in the Western Cape, and actively support our youth in bridging university or college education and the needs of the business world.
