Mpho Mathabi

Ship Captain

Alpha Production started in 2016 and two years later, Mpho is becoming a formidable force in the branding industry with clients spanning across South Africa including brands such as; BRICS, Mazda, Busamed Hospitals, Department of Housing, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Morangi Productions, Status and Nestle forming part of her branding portfolio. “Our business is not just about printing, signage and company branding. It is a solution provider - we look at a client, identify their gaps and find suitable branding solutions for them” says Mpho.

However, all these successes have not happened without challenges. The branding industry is highly saturated, teaching Mpho to continue to look for new and innovative ways to do business. In her first year of business, Mpho has had a huge number of clients and her business continues to grow. She has had to up-scale on equipment and find ways to partner with other businesses to meet the production of large-scale orders due to the lack of big technology and equipment in the industry.

Mpho says that, “Business changes a person’s personality - I have learned that in order to make it out there, I need to be a go-getter” says Mpho. Her advice to young women in the industry is not to overthink it. According to her, “There is never a good time or enough money to start a business - equip yourself with knowledge and surround yourself with like-minded people and you’re sure to succeed”.

The next step for Alpha Production is to gain business in neighbouring countries with South Africa as the head office. It goes without saying that the future of South Africa is definitely female and Mpho Mathabi is one to look out for as she takes the business of branding to new frontiers. #TheQueen
