Why are you interested in being part of VC4Africa?

I enjoy the challenge of identifying challenges that need to be met, setting up companies that meet the challenges and finding willing funding partners. I strongly believe that it better to teacher someone how to fish, instead of giving them fish. I have particular interest in Africa, I dream of the day no country will have FOREIGN AID but mutual trade and investment.

To Offer

My areas of personal expertise include the following:

Human Resources, Sales and Marketing, Strategy and Planning

I can also offer the following expertise to the VC4Africa community:

Management help, local cultural intermediation (was born & grow up in Kenya, did business in Tanzania, Uganda, DRC, Sudan, Kenya & Dubai) then migrated to the USA. In all this cultures I am a local, not an expertriate! Sometimes you need to be comfortable in the “Elders’ Court” under a tree in Bukura Kakamega and in the Boardroom in Wilmington Delaware. If you need that, I can help!

Looking For

I am seeking expertise/coaching in the following areas:

Sales and Marketing, Strategy and Planning

I also hope to gain the following from the VC4Africa community:

Connecting with business people in Africa. My objective in life is that 50% of the African countries wean themselves off foreign aid in my lifetime through business and investment by the Africans themselves.
