A note from SIMBA’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Philippe Kisunzu
“I was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and have a deep passion for the sub-Saharan Africa region and the potential of its citizens. I am thrilled to support these indigenous entrepreneurs as they pursue their dreams. The creation of their unique businesses will bring much-needed jobs, strengthen local economies, and affirm dignity and hope for those who were hopeless. Our ultimate aim together is to transform the entrepreneurial startup ecosystems in sub-Saharan Africa from what they are today into what they could become tomorrow: Sustainable and Prosperous.
I look forward to what we can do together. Get in touch and let’s get started!”
