Our name, Ikabo

It's a riff on the Zulu word 'icebo', that speaks to ideas with purpose.

We pronounce it [ eee-kaa-bow ]


Our (tribe) values

At Ikabo we think of our customers, partners and fans as part of our tribe. We will often call it our ‘eco-system’, we are stronger, smarter and more nimble because of this.

Listen hard, talk straight

No one's got time to listen to convoluted explanations and nor have we.
We promise to ask good questions and give clear advice

We act like your business is our business

We promise to think and act as if your business were our own.
We will start to say ‘we’ instead of ‘you’ pretty quickly.

Better together

Like the African proverb, we know together we can go further.
We value diversity of thinking because we know the outcome is always better for it.


Our tribe is better with you in it, come talk to us today!
