Welcome To The Movement!
By 2030, over 400 million Africans will need jobs.
Governments alone cannot provide these jobs. That’s why unemployment is a huge burden, and a major headache for every country on the continent.
To avert a future of desperation, crime and violence, there is an urgent need to create jobs that will eradicate poverty, improve the quality of people’s lives, and bring economic prosperity to Africa.
But jobs don’t just exist. People create them.
That’s why entrepreneurs are special people. And Africa needs more of them, because they hold the keys to a brighter future for our continent.
Our mission at Smallstarter is to provide aspiring and experienced entrepreneurs with the information, inspiration, tools and guidance they need to exploit business opportunities, make money, create jobs, and impact millions of lives.
Dream big. Start small.

The Smallstarter Manifesto
The power to change the future is in our hands. Successful entrepreneurs know this. That’s why they think and act differently.
The Smallstarter Manifesto is a collection of pledges that will help you to start thinking differently and ultimately become the successful person you deserve to be.
Ready? Read the pledges…
Meet The Founder
I’m glad to have you on Smallstarter!
I consider myself very fortunate to be part of this unique generation of Africans. In our lifetime, Africa will rewrite its history and its abundant business opportunities will create more millionaires than in any century before this one.
While the pessimists see poverty, conflict and broken infrastructure, Africa’s growing army of young, hardworking and relentless entrepreneurs is building, fixing and healing Africa.
With little capital and poor government support, these entrepreneurs defy the odds everyday as they build remarkable businesses and create value in agriculture, green energy, entertainment, waste recycling, fashion, education and several other industries.
My life’s mission is to work with these entrepreneurs and the investors, institutions and initiatives that support them.
I am an author, impact entrepreneur, public speaker and business strategist who works with entrepreneurs and investors to start up and grow businesses in Africa.
My work and articles have been featured on several local and international media, including CNN, The Huffington Post, The Africa Perspective Magazine, Business Day and LinkedIn Pulse, among others.
I’m also the co-author of the widely-acclaimed book, 101 Ways To Make Money in Africa, which reveals several lucrative business opportunities in Africa and several inspiring success stories of entrepreneurs who are doing great things on our continent.
In 2016, I developed the Capital Attraction Secrets Course — a free online course that has attracted thousands of entrepreneurs from across the world. The course has helped to demystify the art and science of successfully raising capital to start and grow a business in Africa, and beyond.
Before my journey with Smallstarter, I was an Associate Business Consultant with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), and worked in a business development role for several years in the professional services industry.
Along the way, I have started several businesses that failed. I’m proud of, and grateful for, these failures because of the remarkable experience and hard lessons they taught me. I continue to benefit from these lessons as I build new income streams, and work with clients to do the same.
I finally broke free from the corporate ‘cage’ to pursue my entrepreneurial dreams and contribute my skills to the transformation of Africa, while helping others willing to do the same.
When I’m not working, I love to ‘chill’ with my wife and son. I love nature, art, history and travel. I’m also a huge fan of Africa (I’m sure you can already tell by now.) 🙂
