Creating an Ecosystem of Collaboration

The DNI group is a niche investment company in the retail, telecommunications, distribution and technology sectors with a specific focus on increasing their already substantial national stake-holding in those areas of commerce. The fundamental resources of DNI are in our highly competent team. We leverage our well-established market position, expertise, and professional knowledge of the cellular and technology industries, to offer solutions from strategic planning down to retail level. 

The group focuses on investments in complementary businesses such as:

  • sim card / starter pack distribution,
  • airtime and value added services,
  • handset distribution,
  • technology

Many of the underlying businesses have their own management teams who typically have a level of shareholding and/or long-term incentives to create strong alignment to the growth of the group
