About

As a seasoned professional with extensive experience in real estate spanning Tanzania and the UK, as well as being deeply involved in the transport and logistics sector through Golden Coach/Fleet Limited, I have cultivated a robust understanding of business dynamics and strategic investment opportunities. My current role as a Strategic Investor and Business Development lead for Africa at Eureeca has further enriched my perspective on global markets and emerging trends.

My interest in mentoring stems from a genuine passion for nurturing entrepreneurial talent and contributing to the growth of innovative ventures. With a focus on East Africa, I am particularly enthusiastic about leveraging my expertise to identify and support high-potential startups with Unicorn aspirations.

Through mentorship, I aim to offer practical insights, strategic guidance, and valuable networking connections to entrepreneurs navigating the complexities of building scalable businesses. My areas of interest and expertise include but are not limited to real estate development, logistics optimization, market expansion strategies, and fundraising through equity crowdfunding platforms like Eureeca.

Furthermore, mentoring presents an opportunity for me to not only share my knowledge and experience but also to actively scout for promising investment opportunities. By engaging with ambitious founders, I hope to identify ventures that align with my investment criteria and potentially explore advisory roles or board seats to further contribute to their success.

In essence, my motivation for mentorship lies in the dual pursuit of supporting aspiring entrepreneurs on their journey to success and strategically positioning myself to identify and engage with unicorn potential businesses in the vibrant ecosystem of East Africa.

Mentorship motivation

  • I am looking for new investments
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

I mentor because it’s my way of giving back to the community and driving positive impact in Tanzania and the region. Through mentoring, I guide startups to navigate challenges, seize opportunities, and secure funding from myself and other investors. It’s about empowering entrepreneurs to thrive while contributing to the growth and vibrancy of the startup ecosystem
