Serge Belamant: Co-Founder of Zilch Technologies & Genius Mind Behind IT Developments

Serge Christian Pierre Belamant hails from humble means as the son of a tiler layer. He was born in Tulle, France where he resided until age 14 when his father decided to move the family to South Africa for new experiences. In those new opportunities, Serge Belamant was able to attend Witwatersrand University where he set to studying computer sciences.

It didn’t take long to determine that Serge Belamant had an impressive aptitude for digital financial transaction software coding. In fact, through his work with several different companies during this time, Serge became a vital member in the establishment of several cutting-edge tech advancements that continue to affect the way our society conducts their banking transactions today. One of the most notable of such is the chip technology that continues to be immensely popular today.

Additionally, Serge Belamant and Net1 collaborated on a form of digital payment system in 1999 which allowed for the expeditious funding of welfare grants to South African citizens in need. The system was so effective that it became widely sought after by other countries, including Iraq and Russia where it is now used today.

One of Serge Belamant’s most recent accomplishments is co-founding Zilch Technologies, based in the United Kingdom. He credits the initial idea for the company to his son, IT engineer Philip Belamant. Serge was intrigued by the social media aspects of the business and the manner in which it could be used to create a set of seamless, innovative, and affordable financial products or services which truly served the needs of the target population.

Now semi-retired, Serge Belamant is the first to admit that his change in employment status hasn’t really altered his lifestyle too drastically. He still begins the day with lists of tasks which need to be completed, still works with the businesses in which he is involved, attempts to preemptively solve the minor issues that he can see coming before they become at all problematic, and simply provide general guidance from a position of great experience. Additional hobbies include chess, lunch with his wife, and regular additions to a book he is attempting to complete.
