Mentorship motivation

  • I like to learn about industries and new businesses
  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent
  • I want to scout for new opportunities in engaging as an advisor or for a board seat

Having spent the past 5 years, particularly working with businesses in Zambia and Southern Africa predominantly, I would love to support businesses with a sustainability, fashion and technology focus.
