About Me

My life has always been about creating and inspiring abundance. I believe that everyone deserves to have plenty in their life and family. A healthy body, mind, and spirit and provision for our daily needs is a right that we all deserve. Some of us, however, have not been lucky to experience this abundance. I am joining with a significant movement of people who want to see everyone created in the image of God, regardless of race, religion, and creed, experiencing life in its fullness.

Everyone Has a Story

And mine starts in a Rwandan refugee family in Uganda. Our family had nothing growing up. I started first grade at age 11, going to school with six-year-olds. My family was so poor that sending me to school wasn’t a priority; they were more worried about food and shelter than education. At age 11, I began working odd jobs and selling small items in the local markets to earn enough to pay for tuition. At the age of 11, I became a Christian and joined a local church in our small village. I ascribe my success in life to God, who has walked with me since that tender age. Soon after becoming a Christian, I was lucky to collect enough money to pay my way through grade school by selling small items in the local markets.

about life

All is Well that Ends Well!

After graduating from seminary, I had the privilege of being introduced to the world of business in the United States, starting out in sales at a financial services firm. I later moved on to lead strategic business intelligence and expansion strategies for the largest member-owned organization in the hearing care industry. The company was named 3 years in a row to the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing companies in America and was acquired for 77 times EBITDA.

In 2014, I received a clear call from God to move back to Africa and build communities with strong faith, families, and finances. I quit my corporate job and moved back to Africa. My wife and I, together with our three and four-year-old daughters permanently moved to Rwanda Africa in January 2015. Since then, we have been involved in building schools, planting community churches, and developing social impact enterprises.

By 2019, four years into our time in Africa, I was receiving a lot of requests from young people to help them with their businesses. A lot of the requests were for capital to launch their ideas or grow their existing business. I realized that I needed more skills in finance so I went back to school and received an MBA in Finance and launched an investment fund the following year. We have since invested in several startups in East Africa in agriculture, housing, education, ecommerce, and fintech. All our startups have raised successful rounds and are revenue positive.

As we continue to run several schools and oversee several churches we have planted, we are also using our training to help transform Africa from a charitable destination to an attractive investment that deserves asset allocation by the global owners of capital. We are helping African communities to build wealth through enterprises that yield above-average returns.

This year I will be starting a new season as a doctoral researcher at Indiana Wesleyan University working on the intersection of business with social engagement.

It’s been a long 20+ year journey for me and I have found much joy and fulfillment in my life’s calling of empowering Africa through education, evangelism, and enterprise. I believe that the next 20 years in Africa will see this continent delivered from poverty and becoming the next investment frontier. That’s our current mission.
