Martin Freeman



I am an experienced entrepreneur with over 20 years of proven business experience and success in business start-ups that create and distribute various products and services. In 2004, I co-founded Bayport Financial Services SA, which utilised the proven model of retail and direct selling as the platform for the successful and exponential year on year growth. (R5bn debtors book, +-90 branches/outlets, 1,000 employees and 2,500 agents nationally). After successfully handing over the reins of the company, I completed an Executive Management Programme at Harvard University in 2012. In 2013, I resigned from Bayport to once again pursue my own business interests through the Bettalives Group. My specialities span vision, strategic input, leadership and strong people skills along with identifying new opportunities and start-ups. I’m seeking a network of like minded entrepreneurs to network with, to mentor and to be mentored.
