About

I have a strong business development track record all throughout my professional life and now dedicating my time to private sector development in Africa. As a serial investor in Uganda, I enjoy coaching dynamic entrepreneurs and helping them face the challenges they encounter in their businesses. I am heavily involved in private sector development and social entrepreneurship in Uganda, Rwanda, Senegal, and Benin.
My business, OVO, wants to support and promote sustainable entrepreneurship in Africa with the ‘Sustainable Technology for Africa’ concept (SusTech4Africa). To that end, OVO works with formidable organizations like the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO), Thomas More College, and The African Diaspora Projects Initiative. SusTech4Africa helps start-ups, scale-ups, and entrepreneurs with African roots to detail their project until it becomes fully-fledged business plan.
