David Luke Mostert

UCLA Alumni | Venture Capitalist | Non-profit Founder

In a few words

Born and raised in South Africa, I am a entrepreneur and current undergraduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Moreover, I am a SA Teen Entrepreneur Foundation Fellow and founder of a non-profit organization: The Litoro Foundation.

As an entrepreneur and young scholar, I am particularly passionate about technology and its application to social problems on the continent of Africa. So in my free time you may find me reading books or watching lectures on such topics. My other favourite topics to delve into include psychology, economics, and venture capital.

In terms of hobbies, I have a particular penchant for the sport of Tennis, having played on a sports scholarship in high school, and competitively in tournaments on an international level.
