What do you do when your first business venture becomes a major success within just 18 months of launching? If you are Trevor Gosling, you launch another one.
Gosling founded 5ounces, a food and wine e-commerce platform in 2012. To his surprise, the business did so well that in 2013 it was acquired by Naspers, the media and entertainment group, and investor in tech businesses.
"[The first business] was really off the back of my brother and his partner having founded Groupon South Africa and having seen the success there," says Gosling.
