About Hashtag Viral

Hashtag Viral is a South African start-up that is focussed on the empowerment of South African scholars and students. The platform was developed by university students, driven by the economic hardships that are faced by South African millennials. Our motivation had stemmed from the ‘Fees Must Fall’ movement that demonstrated our generation’s courage and solidarity as showcased by students at the various campuses. Hashtag Viral was devised as our attempt to alleviate the financial plight of South African youth through a medium that we are familiar with and proficient at, social media.

Hashtag Viral is the medium that gives brands access to suitable social media influencers to take their message viral. We empower those that promote your brand.
