Ruvimbo Chikwava on creating shared value through collaboration

Scale Up Africa
April 30th, 2021 · 1 min read

In this episode we talk to Ruvimbo Chikwava, Co-Founder & CEO of African Solutions Private Limited (AfriSol). Afrisol is a pan-African enterprise that enables the enhancement of nutrition levels plus wealth and employment creation amongst small-holder farmers with a bias towards women and the youth in Rwanda.

We discuss Ruvimbo’s journey from working in a Big 4 audit firm to his previous role as a treasury and business development executive, and his latest role at AfriSol where he is helping small-holder farmers increase productivity, efficiency, and the quality of their produce. Ruvimbo speaks on the deepening sense of “conscious incompetence” in entrepreneurship as well as the unexpected joys and growth of learning from students in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation class at the African Leadership University School of Business.

We also explore why African entrepreneurs might be struggling with collaboration and how we need to commit to have all hands on deck with as many stakeholders as possible if we are to truly Scale Up Africa.
