Interview: Craig Venter on Altron and ClickaBet

Craig Venter

Thank you for listening to the TechCentral podcast. In this episode, Duncan McLeod chats to former Altron TMT CEO Craig Venter on what he’s been up to since resigning from Altron in 2015.

In the podcast, Venter talks about Altron’s performance since he left the group. He explains why he believes it was a mistake to buy out the Altech minorities in 2014, saying the group should have completed the sale of its legacy Powertech businesses before taking on the debt associated with the delisting.

Venter then chats about his new venture, online sports betting start-up ClickaBet, and why he believes there’s a huge opportunity in this space. He explains the company’s deal with Cell C, announced this week, and why he thinks the market is just getting started. It’s a great listen. Don’t miss it!

Erratum: In the podcast, McLeod says Altron was founded in 1947. In fact, it was founded in 1965.
