Marco Rosa (MD)
Marco’s interest in design began when he studied architecture at Wits Technikon and completed his internship with O’Malley Moses and Associates in Johannesburg. After completing his internship, he was offered an opportunity in the financial services industry with the Liberty Group, based in Johannesburg. After a successful few years in sales, Marco decided to move to Cape Town in 2001 and worked as an investment consultant in the financial services sector for Investec. Marco then ventured into start up territory with a company that employed tablet PC technology to streamline sales processes in financial services. He sold the company two years later.

Marco’s passion for technology, design and education and training came together whilst consulting to Apple on their education initiatives. Shortly after he became partner and Managing Director at Formula D interactive where he uses his combined skills and passion to help grow a company that sees the intersection of design, technology and education at the heart of a future world.
