With me in Accra is Lynn Sellanga, our latest addition to the team as “Head of Operations Africa”. Lynn is a power woman who made it from her village in Kenya to America on her own as a teenager and studied there. Back in Kenya, she worked her way up step by step in various start-ups. She now coordinates our activities across all of our ventures, because their needs are often surprisingly similar: what helps one venture today, we can apply to another tomorrow; be it a negotiation guide for sales talks or a training format for the manufacture of the respective products.
