JOHANNESBURG, Friday, 28 May 2021 – Ambitious Machinery, a company of Cornerstone Trust, has come up with a cutting edge platform by which Information Technology-minded South Africans can learn from each other through providing tips and case-study videos.

Not only does the platform allow for people to share their videos to allow others to empower themselves with software knowledge, but the producers of the content will also receive a remuneration fee from Ambitious Machinery for their efforts.

  • A 1-minute video + article of 100 words will earn the producer of the content R200.
  • A 1 minute to 1 minute 30 second video with a 150-word article, will be paid R250.
  • R350 will go to the maker of a 1 minute 30 seconds to 2-minute video with 200 plus words and 1 photograph about software.
  • R450 will go to the maker of a 2 minute to 3-minute video with 200 plus words and 1 photograph about software.
  • R500 will be paid to the producer of a 4-minute video and an article of 300 plus words with 2 pictures about software.
  • Note that if a video is more than 4 minutes in length, it should be split into two or more topics, or create a mini series and interlink each other.

In being the holding company of proactive brands such as rent-to-own Affordable Assets (a2), machine training-focused Ambitious Machinery, equipment financers Bizmatic, and the platform,, Cornerstone has entrenched itself as a leading thinking company in the business sector which focuses on today with an eye on tomorrow and more.

“As firm believers in South Africa and its people, we are always on the lookout to create empowerment opportunities where people can increase their skills and most importantly, creating platforms where they can share their knowledge with others,” said Ambitious Machinery MD Eric Yin.

“That is how South Africa will grow and return to being the economic hub of the continent.”

On the machinery front, Cornerstone’s Affordable Assets (a2) brand offers rent-to-own financial packages for small, medium, and largescale business to be able to acquire the machinery that they need to pursue their dream and venture into the world of goods production.

Ambitious Machinery is focused on empowering people through providing them with the necessary skills to action machinery.

“Whether we are called on to increase the skills of a beginner or a more experienced worker, we have the necessary information, usually based on teaching videos, to empower people which in turn will make them even of a more valuable asset to their company,” said Yin.

The Bizmatic Lending Experience is another major feather in the cap of Cornerstone. Registered with the National Credit Regulator (NCR), Bizmatic is well-positioned to allocate funding to turn people’s business dreams into reality.

“In lending terms, I always say that we can box with the best lenders in town because of our passion of buying into people’s dreams and turning them into reality,” said Yin.

“We believe that small stones build big bridges, and no idea is too small or should be immediately cast aside, but rather carefully thought through.”

Yin’s opinion has much sense with Kentucky Fried Chicken founder Colonel Harland Sanders having had his chicken recipe turned down 1009 times. Having finally got financial backing, his business had 600 franchise outlets by 1964.

Walt Disney too is believed to have been turned down 302 times before someone believed in his dream to create Disneyworld in the US.

“Its not about the size of the idea but rather the size of the passion and vision that impresses us,” said Yin.

“We know the machinery industry and have a good understanding of what can take the market to the next level. We believe in South Africa and its people. South Africans are out-of-the-box thinkers and that is what it will take to get our economy thriving again, but I believe it will happen and we are glad to be a part of it.”
