Hi, I'm Mike Blum, a South African ex-pat living in the Bay Area for more than 30 years.  I own my own consulting engineering business in Mountain View.  I am also on the SABLE Accelerator Advisory Board (South African Business Link to Experts).  SABLE works to promote start-ups and other business activities in South Africa.  I have recently co-founded a non profit to grow business in rural southern African communities.

I would like to facilitate contacts within our Bay Area southern African community.

Please don't hesitate to contact me.

Alles van de beste,

Mike Blum
