I believe that entrepreneurship is the key to unlock economics in African nations and to transform African lives. I am a co-founder at Magma Ltd, a design agency focused on brand development for local companies in Kenya.

I am offering mentorship to contribute my knowledge and insights to starting entrepreneurs to help them build more sustainable and investable organizations in Africa. I focus on working with early stage startup founders to help them lay proper foundations for their ventures. This is typically from the idea stage (year 0) to the growth stage (year 3).

I also mentor to build my experience and expertise to build up my startup coaching business.

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

I believe that African entrepreneurs can do significantly better if we share the insights and knowledge we have gained with each other. Business in Africa is unlike anywhere else on earth.

While we can learn principles from others in other regions to some extent, it is African entrepreneurs, mentors and coaches who can truly empathize and provide the value we need to build truly transformative organizations.
