Serge Belamant was born in France and moved to Sout Africa in his teenage years, which is where he learned how to speak English. He went to school in Sout Africa at the Highlands North Highschool for Boys, which he was an exceptional student at and was very successful as both an athlete and a student.

Serge Belamant started his career at an engineering company, Matrix, where he worked on modest projects using software analysis tools and special computer algorithms. The work that he did at Matrix was far from insignificant, he helped develop and expand digital mapping as well as statistical methods and new graphics interfaces. While he was working at Matrix he also did some side work outside of the company, helping Control Data’s engineers do bench marks against a variety of computer makers. As successful as his career at Matrix was, he eventually moved on to work with Bancorp to research risk management, and went off further to dive into the issue of how sustainable a business really is. He continued working with Bancorp to implement a switch system used for ATM’s. After his career at Bancorp, he eventually left the company and started working for Saswitch, although this honey honeymoon did not last long, soon after he would leave that company to pursue a venture of his own, founding the company Net1 Technologies, which was a smash hit and developed a variety of different projects and tools, which has lead to Serge Belamant becoming the technology juggernaut that we all know and love today.
