About Us

BahatiSA, a level 1 female-owned enterprise specialising in technologies and consulting was established in 2018. Bahati, which means good fortune and success in the Swahili dialect, was started with the intention to support people, businesses and organisations in solving some of their internal workforce transformation problems as well as to assist on digital transformational strategies. Through a well-established local and global presence within the digital community, it became possible to make an impact in South Africa. And with the onset of the Covid pandemic, only highlighted our ability to be flexible and adaptable to change. This also enabled the business to be directly affiliated with technologies to drive larger and more effective changes than ever before. This was mainly attributed to our resolute leadership and vision and the ability to leverage off-key partnerships.

about karen BahatiSA founder



Karina completed her studies at Wits University and obtained a BA Psych, BA Hons (2009) in Industrial Psychology. She then registered as a Psychometrist under the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as well as qualified NLP Masters practitioners. She started her career as an intern Psychometrist and over a +6 year period had exposed herself to global organizations such as the big 5 accounting/advisory firms, Africa’s top legal firms as well as award-winning insurance companies whereby she was fortunate to experience the end to end value chain of human capital, business operations and strategy, working with global industry leaders, project development and implementation, but more importantly- understanding the humanistic & technological strengths and pain points across an entire workforce.
Her ambitious nature has led to further growth which she felt was obtainable by taking a leap into the unknown (entrepreneurship), whereby she would be able to solve much bigger problems. She went on to obtain her ExO accreditations under exponential organisations which focus on digital transformation (scaling x10) through the use of disruptive technologies. Karina was offered a role as Non-Executive director for Human Rights on an NGO board. She is a BRICS Council member under Future Skills and Agribusiness working groups of South Africa. The roles played in these groups are in collaboration with the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). Furthermore, she plays a role in capital raising on large investment projects within SA, where required.

BahatiSA has evolved since its inception- with the aim to accelerate creativity through sustainable solutions, the company’s goal is to optimize business and people development through the use of disruptive technologies and proven success methodologies across sectors at a global-wide level.
