In 2011, he was rated as the best student entrepreneur in the world (Global Champion of the Global Student Entrepreneurs Awards 2011). That same year, Google named him as one of the 12 brightest young minds in the world. He holds a Bachelor of Business Science, majoring in Finance & Accounting, from the University of Cape Town in South Africa. In December 2013, TIME Magazine named him as one of the 30 people, under 30, who are changing the of only 2 Africans on the list.

DryBath® is designed to provide more hygiene to the 2 billion people without adequate water access, who still use the traditional bucket-bathing method. It was also designed to provide a convenient hygiene alternative to affluent households, allowing them to use less water.

DryBath® is a Bath-Substituting® gel, designed to replace the need for soap, water and skin lotion. DryBath® is an innovative gel that cleans your body by using the skin-rubbing motion of your hands to gently remove dead skin cells & full-body odour, without damaging your skin’s natural protective barrier or the need for much water. This saves you time when in a rush, or when bathing with water is difficult or awkward.

After graduating from UCT, Ludwick has dedicated himself to running his business, and to working with the Technology Innovation Agency in order to promote technology/ innovation entrepreneurship, especially among young people. He is currently focused on developing a viable case that will be used to position Headboy Industries Inc. as a privately run technology innovation agency, with an intense focus on conducting measurable commercial experiments that can produce sustainable results for private or public clients.

In 2013, Frost & Sullivan awarded him, alongside Archbishop Desmond Tutu, with the Growth Innovation & Leadership Africa Award (GIL 2013). Headboy Industries was also selected as the Overall Winner at the Inaugural Western Cape Premier’s Entrepreneurship Recognition Awards (2013).
