Strive Masiyiwa & Wife=$100 million to fund rural entrepreneurs in Zimbabwe

Strive Masiyiwa & Wife, owners of Econet telecom is giving out $100 million to fund rural entrepreneurs in Zimbabwe.

This is the success story of Strive Masiyiwa. A business leader who based his success on the betterment of his people, nation, and continent. He faced a lot of challenges from Zimbabwe spanning through Nigeria, and his courage to stand strong in the face of overwhelming adversity to attain success while still giving back to the society is an inspiration to many.

Today, he is not just one of Africa’s wealthiest and most powerful personalities but is the founder of one of Africa’s leading telecoms companies, Econet.

Strive Masiyiwa is famous for his philanthropic efforts and passion for social/economic empowerment. And has become a man whose actions changes lives and creates lasting legacies.


The Early Years Of Strive Masiyiwa

On the 29th of January, 1961 the Masiyiwas welcomed their baby boy, Strive, to the world. The Masiyiwas were a hardworking family living in South Rhodesia which was later renamed Zimbabwe. At that time, the Ian Smith government was collapsing in the face of anti-colonialism and revolution.

Knowing that political unrest meant economic hardship, the Masiyiwas made the decision to leave their home country. So in 1968, seven years old Strive and his family moved to Kitwe, a popular copper mining town in North-central, Zambia. Shortly after, Mr Masiyiwa, Strive’s Father, got a job working in one of Kitwe’s copper mines. His entrepreneurial mother got involved in transportation, farming, and retail businesses. The business so prospered that Mr Masiyiwa left his mining job and joined the family business.

Education And Military Career

In 1973, the Masiyiwas were able to afford what many African parents wanted for their children; a European education. When he was 12 years old, Strive Masiyiwa left Zambia for an education at a private secondary school in Edinburg, Scotland.

After his graduation in 1978, Strive (17) decided to join the anti-colonial movement in Zimbabwe. When he got there, he met a senior officer who told him told him that what Zimbabwe needed wasn’t more fighters but builders. Taking that advice to heart, he turned around and went back to the U.K.

Strive was then admitted into the University of Wales where he obtained a degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in 1983.e

Pre-Entrepreneurship Experience

Done with his tertiary education, Strive Masiyiwa joined the corporate world. For a short while, he worked in the tech industry in Cambridge, England. In 1984, he returned to the post-colonial, newly independent Zimbabwe.

Strive Masiyiwa was ready to begin rebuilding his country.

He was employed as a senior engineer at the state-owned telephone Zimbabwean company, Posts and Telecommunications Corporations (PTC). Strive’s brilliance and excellent work ethic caused his superiors to fast-track his promotion from senior to principal engineer in the corporation in a short period of time.

Despite career progress, there was something lacking. Strive Masiyiwa was disturbed by incessant government formalities hindering the progress of the industry. And in 1988, he quit PTC to start his own company, Retrofit Engineering. It was a move that earned him Zimbabwe’s Youngest Businessman of the Year Award in 1990.S

The Retrofit Engineer

Strive Masiyiwa’s entry into the entrepreneurial world was entirely on time. At this time, the construction industry in Zimbabwe was booming. Strive organized a team of about 100 people, launched Retrofit Engineering with about $75 and began offering electrical engineering services on a contract basis.

Five years later, Retrofit Engineering became a top engineering company in the country.

The Econet Empire; Beginning, Trials, And Success.

Beginning:

Strive Masiyiwa’s telecom empire, Econet, started with the idea of a problem that needed an effective solution. He saw that at the time most Africans did not know about mobile telecommunications. Some hadn’t even heard a cell phone ring. In a world that was constantly advancing technologically, this was a huge problem. It was a need that had to be supplied and used to move his country to the new age of technology.

Thus began the journey towards the establishment of the mobile telecom operation service in Zimbabwe.

In 1994, Strive Masiyiwa prepared a business plan and approached the CEO of Standard Chartered Merchant Bank, Dr Nkosana Moyothe. He laid out his ideas to the CEO and requested a loan to fund his novel company. Fortunately, the bank believed in him and gave him the loan he needed. With the capital in place, he went to his former place of employment, PTC. Masiyiwa had prepared a proposal that included a partnership with a mobile telecoms company. According to the proposal, PTC would own 51% shares leaving Masiyiwa with 49% stake.

But he was shut down completely!

His former employers took a look at his business idea and discarded it. As far as they were concerned, PTC was and would always be the leading (if not the only) telecommunications corporation in Zimbabwe. They were firm in the belief that mobile telecommunication was a temporary phase and that people would return to the traditional in no time.

There and then, his application for a business license was denied.

First Trials:

Probably to the dismay of the PTC and Zimbabwean government, Strive Masiyiwa was not a man to be defeated by the word, “No”. Instead, it strengthened his resolve to achieve something that was definitely going to be the start of something great for Zimbabwe.

Strive Masiyiwa began the 5-year legal (bankrupting) battle with the Zimbabwean government. Till this day, people describe it as a David and Goliath combat. And as the Bible story goes, Strive Masiyiwa (David) defeated Goliath (the government). For in 1998, the Constitutional Court of Zimbabwe awarded Strive Masiyiwa the license to establish and operate a mobile telecom service in Zimbabwe.

His victory ended the government’s monopoly over the telecoms industry and ushered in the era of privately-owned telecoms companies.

Soon after, Strive Masiyiwa established Econet Wireless, Zimbabwe.

In about 12 years, Masiyiwa proved PTC wrong; Econet Wireless is and remains the leading mobile Telecoms Company in Zimbabwe.

The Econet Group:

In March 2000, Masiyiwa left Zimbabwe to South Africa on a self-imposed exile. But this was not a decision he made lightly. Although he won the licensing battle, things were far from settled. The Zimbabwean government had no intention of letting things go without retaliation.

While on exile, he founded the Econet Wireless group. However, the company had no connection to Econet Wireless in Zimbabwe. This was the group that led to the establishment of a global empire.

At present, the Econet Group has holdings and investments in the U.K, China, South America, UAE, New Zealand, Europe, and Africa.

Masiyiwa’s major businesses are Econet Wireless Burundi, Econet Wireless International, Econet Satellite Services, Former Econet Nigeria (Now Airtel), Lesotho Telecom, Transaction Processing Systems, Rwanda Telecom, Solarway, Mascom Wireless Botswana, Econet Wireless Global, and Econet Wireless South Africa.

He is an investor in businesses in Fintech and some power distribution companies. Particularly successful is his London-based asset, Liquid Telecom—a fibre optic/satellite service company. The privately held telecom company is currently Africa’s leading satellite and fibre optic company.

Masiyiwa also extended his interests to the U.S. He has the majority shares in Seldon Technologies, the manufacturers of nanofiber carbon product in Vermont. He is partners with John Stanton, an influential telecom entrepreneur, in a venture named Trilogy International Partners. This business birthed “2 Degrees” a mobile operator in New Zealand.

Econet’s holdings include financial services, renewable energy, enterprise networks, and the media.

Other Trials:

Masiyiwa’s second round of personal and business attacks from the government were significant events in his personal and entrepreneurial journey.

In the early months of 2002, Daily News, the only independent newspaper with the largest reader base in Zimbabwe, was heading towards bankruptcy. In a timely manner, Masiyiwa stepped in and invested in the newspaper. Consequently, he became one of the top shareholders in Associate Newspapers of Zimbabwe.

In what was an obvious attack, the paper was shut down by the government on the basis of illegal operations.

Strive Masiyiwa had no choice but to sell his shares and move on. Daily News remained closed until 2011.

The attacks continued.

In 2014, the government sanctioned the arrest of Econet Wireless executives and directors. These people were sent to a maximum security prison in chains like hardened criminals. Fortunately, Strive was in Singapore to secure foreign investments, so the government could not get to him. Going to South Africa was ill-advised at this time as his government’s reach extended there. Whilst his people suffered unjustly, his hard-won company was on the verge of crumbling. There was no leadership, everyone was in a panic and the government was on a manhunt.

A week later, there was a hearing but it did not go in their favour. Despite the lack of concrete evidence, they were sent back to prison. Nevertheless, Masiyiwa and his team did not stop pushing for their release.

Thankfully, they were released about nine days later and (to everyone’s surprise) they all went back to work immediately.

In spite of it all, nothing could stop Masiyiwa and his team’s progress. They continued working hard for themselves, for the people of Zimbabwe and for Africa.

Strive Masiyiwa and Humanity

Time and time again, Masiyiwa has demonstrated his compassion for humanity and his passion for human development. He is devoted to philanthropy as a means of uplifting others. He is well-known for his initiatives that aim towards making life easier, financially. With his personal wealth, he built a remarkable educational support program for African orphans. Now, over 40 thousand children have benefited from the Masiyiwa family foundation.

Alongside Warren Buffet and Bill Gates, Masiyiwa is a member of the Giving Pledge initiative. Furthermore, he and his wife, Tsitsi, created a foundation, Higherlife, for orphaned children in Burundi, South Africa, Lesotho, and Zimbabwe.

Masiyiwa became the co-chairperson of Grow Africa in 2013; an African agricultural investment forum which has helped raise $15 Billion for agricultural projects in Africa. He is also the chairman of another agricultural support program (AGRA) for small-scale farmers in Africa.

Health programs and anti-campaigns against Ebola, Cervical Cancer, and HIV/AIDS prevention have had Masiyiwa’s valuable support. A passionate environmentalist, he teamed up with Sir Richard Branson to set up Carbon War room.

NASDAQ, the second largest stock exchange in the world, plans to launch Bitcoin

What is Nigeria government’s plan about bitcoin . See what others are planning ..

Bitcoin is back in the news as its price continues a meteoric rise, with the cost of a single coin breaking $10,000 yesterday.

NASDAQ, the second largest stock exchange in the world, plans to launch bitcoin in 2018. Futures and derivatives allow investors to place bets on bitcoin without owning any of the actual currency, amplifying the amount of financial leverage on the underlying asset. It was an explosion of derivatives pegged to real estate assets like mortgages that underpinned the financial collapse of 2008.

As veteran investor and financial analyst Josh Brown wrote on his, none of this is likely to change soon:

“These people aren’t going anywhere. Crypto is here to stay. It doesn’t matter if most of the ICOs see their token prices crash by 90% (which is what I think will happen). Walking the halls and having people come up to me to explain their projects, I came to the realization that price crashes alone will not drive these people out. They’ve got business cards, and signs and LLCs and money raised and there will undoubtedly be projects that become real companies, even if the majority disappear. This is how all capitalism works. The crash of the internet economy at the turn of the century didn’t kill the internet itself. Google came around four years later. Three years after that, the iPhone came out. Then Facebook and Twitter. These are all post-crash. So if you’re sick of hearing about crypto, the bad news is that it’s going to be a part of the world for the foreseeable future.”

Another e-commerce giant to be launched in Kenya by Safaricom

Safaricom, a Telecom giant in Kenya is about to launch its E-commerce site  named  Masoko .

Masoko will take on platforms such as Jumia and Kilimall head-on with the advantage of having Safaricom’s deep pockets, its partners and Lipa na M-Pesa online built into it. According to the information we have, Masoko is meant to be an avenue for local merchants, including supermarkets, and customers to interact and trade in a bid for Safaricom to boost its M-Pesa payments platform (Lipa na M-Pesa)

It’s aiming to cut delivery times from the current 72-96 hours.

Safaricom is looking for ways to build on the success of M-Pesa, its mobile-phone money transfer service that dominates the Kenyan economy and is used by subscribers to pay for everything from utility bills to groceries and gasoline.

Safaricom is looking for growth and planning a future where data and voice may not take care of the margins because of effect facebook and whatapps messengers.

“By leveraging the strength and reach of our network, our customer base, and a number of partnerships with vendors, we hope to create a solution that can power the next phase of growth for the Kenyan economy. We hope to create a universal platform that will connect the smallest of vendors in Kenya to a nationwide market,” said Mr. Ogutu.


Something To Learn

Unlike most ecommerce operators in Africa, Safaricom could find success easily. If you read clearly, Safaricom is looking for the best way to expand the Kenyan economy because that is where its “currency”, MPESA, is very dominant.

Safaricom is launching this ecommerce to help in the growth of MPESA, its very best product: “Masoko will accept all mobile money payments …” The more Safaricom can move more Kenyan commerce to MPESA, the more it benefits because MPESA is in its ecosystem. So, technically, even if it does not make money through ecommerce, Safaricom will make money through more activities in MPESA. Ecommerce is generally hard to make money, but there are many ways of making money in it.  You play parallel, using it to grow another product.

Safaricom is going to run the typical double play which is used by leading global ecommerce businesses.  These companies always have complementary services to ecommerce—double play strategy

Lab-grown mosquitoes to destroy the population of the bad mosquitoes

How You can lure google to find Your website

No matter how great or professional your website looks that does not guarantee, Goggle,the overlord of search, to find your website while people goggle for items online .It always helps to have a map telling you where everything is, right? Well, it’s the same with search engines. They’re able to crawl your site by themselves, but you can make it a lot easier for them by creating something called a sitemap.

Essentially, sitemaps tell search engines like Google and Bing how your site is structured. This way, they can crawl and index your site more efficiently. They’re an essential part of your SEO strategy. 

What Sitemaps Are and How They Help

To explain what a sitemap is, it helps to have a very basic understanding of how search engines index the web. Essentially, search engines send out robots called crawlers that follow links around the Internet. Each time they find a new link, the crawler will index that new page . And from then on, people searching in Google or other search engines can see that page in the search results.

Sitemaps expedite this process by providing search engine robots with a detailed map of your site. Instead of having to crawl your site manually by finding internal links to all your content, the crawler can instantly know where every public page in your website is located.

A website without a sitemap is like a shop address without a good description where the address can be found .

 Sitemap is not the only seo strategy to help google to find your website but it goes a long way to help.

TRUST -the business side

The e-commerce giant, Amazon is working on a smart doorbell. This bell will allow you to open your door remotely for delivery people to drop items you have bought from Amazon. It seems foolish that somebody can do that. What if they hack the solution and someone enters your house? It is electronics and it is IP-controlled which means that it works through the Internet. It is a risk indeed. Yet, people will likely get the device. It’s still unclear when it would be released The technology is not really the bottleneck, the issue is this: can you trust Amazon to have the capacity to make this happen without any level of mayhem. Trust a big element to accelerate growth in startups.  When a company is loved, it can use that grace to open new opportunities.
