I have worked with entrepreneurs and startups and SMEs to identify and execute NEW areas of business (e.g. new markets, new distribution channels, new products) and partnership development to help them grow business and scale viable innovations.
I am looking for a business development and product guy with some experience in or around financial services (mobile and MFI), agricultural value chains and distribution at the BoP to partner with me on a new initiative to support small holder farmers.
I have experience managing relationships with key stakeholders and partners in tech and social enterprise ecosystem - government, donors, business associations, philanthropists, pipeline partners, mentors, media, entrepreneurs, and a deep understanding in East Africa's impact entrepreneurship ecosystem.
I also publish a personal blog, guest write on leading blogs and contribute to magazines on social media and entrepreneurship.
