The Netsurit journey began in 1995 when with two university friends, Rian van der Walt and Orrin Klopper got together and started selling computers and engineering calculators. By the end of 1996, Orrin decided that supporting other entrepreneurs by helping them purchase the right technology solutions for their business was his true calling. In genuine dot-com style, Orrin, Rian and Brian Cooper started a formal business from a back room in their home. It only took a year before they were providing outsourced IT services and support to small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). A few years later, Netsurit was born.
