Regenesys Foundation Leadership

About Us

Dr Marko Saravanja and Dr Penny Law started Regenesys Business School in 1998. They were joined by William Vivian in 1999. The institution has become a leading private Business School, based in Sandton, Johannesburg, the heart of South Africa’s financial district.

Today, over 190 000 students have passed through the doors of Regenesys. A large chunk of these students signed up and study online from every country in the world.

Business Education is a powerful force for positive change in any society, as such, the Regenesys Foundation was established to drive philanthropic investment in education to create more entrepreneurs and further empower those already working in all kinds of business outfits.

In November 2012, Marko started Regenesys Free Business Education, the free online business education initiative at Regenesys Business School.  This Programme of the Foundation provides free online business education to the world.

Since its launch, more than 50,000 students from more than 190 countries have benefited from this initiative.


The Regenesys Foundation is a registered Public Benefit Organisation which has been approved and guided by Section 18A(1)(a) of the South African Income Tax Act No 58 of 1962.
