In 2000 the company closed additional VC rounds in the US and had offices in San Franciso, Denver, Boston and London. Nevo had a range of positions in the business including Managing Director/CEO. In 2002, the company was selected as one of the top 50 technology startups in California. Nevo returned to SA to focus on building the Sub Saharan Africa market, and working with many of the top Telco’s in the region.
On leaving Systesfusion, Nevo undertook product development and innovation consulting projects for Telecoms and Venture capital companies including Alcatel Lucent IP transformation lab, Smile Telecoms, Swiftnet and many others.
Nevo joined Kagiso Media to build their digital division and head up media convergence initiatives in 2009. He acquired new digital assets such as gloo digital and created a partnership with Microsoft for Kagiso to operate and sell the MSN portal, Hotmail and other windows live properties throughout SSA. Nevo left Kagiso in February 2011 after growing the digital business into a full division.
