Product Designer

Caleb Chavalala

Caleb is a Product Designer with an intricate career journey that has seen him influence the design of many digital products across a wide spectrum of industries in South Africa. This unlikely juxtaposing of unique experiences has been the main ingredient for an engineered serendipity, which has seen him develop multidisciplinary problem-solving skills suited for playing a part in advancing the diverse African startup ecosystem.

Prior to joining Founders Factory Africa, Caleb’s most recent role was product owner and design lead at the South African Proptech startup, Leadhome.

Caleb believes that a designer’s superpower is their ability to engage with people at every level, from those on the ground to world leaders with a birds-eye view. After all, it’s very difficult to design an impactful solution for someone you’ve never met.


"The introspective perspective of a native founder helps them deeply understand the problem and all its conditions, design-thinking equips them with the tools to solve it effectively." - Caleb Chavalala
