Nations Rise When Pioneering Entrepreneurs Emerge, Africa Needs Builders

The biggest movement in African commerce is the fintech movement. In Uganda, I called the fintech sector, the “Africa’s new growth operating system”. Last week, a fintech signed an agreement to provide zero-interest education financing to Tekedia Institute’s learners. We will bulk discount but they take risks for prepaying us! The full press release is coming.

This is the point – nations rise when pioneering entrepreneurs emerge. The future of education funding will not come through government, in Africa, but through innovators, entrepreneurs and makers. I want to commend those who are building, over just complaining. 

This is my message: anything is possible in Africa. But we should not be looking for governments to bring those possibilities.

One thought on “Nations Rise When Pioneering Entrepreneurs Emerge, Africa Needs Builders

  1. The governments are also in need of solutions, they as confused and overwhelmed as anyone else, so if you excel in anything, the government will equally pay attention to you.

    People build nations, no government ever built a nation, governments only come to dominate, they are never configured to build anything profound.

    Humans remain the greatest institutions, the ultimate natural resources, not the things you mine from the ground; human minds trump them all.

    But you have to believe!
