A brand new digitally savvy way to revolutionize one’s business opportunities has launched locally in the form of Vault Share – the first social card and app in Africa that encourages authentic and meaningful interactions in any social or business setting.

Vault Share allows one’s contact information to be stored instantly without needing an intermediary app. All of the customers’ online profiles and live digital biographies are consolidated in one place – instantly sharable, simply with a tap.

The proudly South African-designed business product, is powered by the owners of the Vault Brand: Dr Chad Marthinussen and Gino Lange – who head up the leading technology solutions company: Wave-Innovate.

The Cape Town-based entrepreneur-duo is determined to change the narrative around African tech solutions and products, by launching various leading products across a number of tech and business genres – including the Nano Wave respiratory mask.

Marthinussen says that the product is well-suited to the COVID-19 pandemic business trends, focusing on digital interactions as the “new normal” in business practices.

“With the share card, you do not need to handle someone else’s device to help them find your details, they have full access to it via Vault Share. We believe that COVID-19 has opened the door for many novel ideas to come to life and novel ways of doing things will soon become the norm,” says Marthinussen.
The new way to network
The convention of social media has enabled each individual to curate a narrative for their lives to showcase their unique abilities and traits. This shift sparked Vault Share – a NFC based social card set to revolutionize the art of global networking.

“I decided to look for a piece of technology that could make the process of networking smoother, slicker, safer and also more holistic. The act of handing over a business card is very outdated and not very effective – and I wanted to create something that would add value to the end user by allowing them to get the most out of their social interactions. ,” explains Marthinussen.

He adds: “Gino and I realised that South Africa (and Africa) does not have a premium lifestyle orientated carry-on ecosystem and thus we ventured to create the Vault brand. The technology is relatively new with interest growing daily. The end goal is clear with where we want to go with the technology. The social aspect is only the start.” 

Vault Share is the virtual name tag that uses low power Bluetooth and NFC to transfer pre-stored data from the Vault Share social card to their new acquaintances.

Vault Share, powered by Blue, uses cutting-edge technology to reinvent the business card. It allows you to instantly share your social information with just one tap. Allowing a curated collection of relevant and impactful digital content to be available to your network at the click of a button is incredibly powerful.


Where Vault Share will work:

  1. B2C: students, business owners, business professionals, recruiters, and social media users.
    2. B2B retail: shopping malls, brand stores, convenience stores, and gas stations.
    3.       B2B hospitality: Businesses that entertain or receive guests, such as hotels, casinos, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, schools, vacations, stadiums, convention centres, airports.

The Vault is a minimalist, RFID theft blocking wallet. This non-traditional wallet expands to hold up to 15 cards and comes with an attachable cash clip to hold your bills.

Marthinussen and Lange believe South Africans should adopt the Vault lifestyle that Wave-Innovate is trying to create – being synonymous with the idea of being known as the ‘Apple of Wallets’.

“Vault and Vault Share will bring tremendous value to the customers. The Vault Share will ensure their vital credit card information is safe and secure considering the rise in credit card skimming in SA. With the festive season approaching it will be even more prevalent. We believe that the use of Vault Share will result in more effective networking and more measurable conversions,” he says.

The Vault Wallet retails at R999 and the Vault Share card retails at R799. For more details and to purchase your very own Vault Wallet, visit:
