Co-Founder & Director of Innovation
After spending several years as a manager in the restaurant and retail industry, in 2008 Mark took a posting through Engineers Without Borders working with the company Forest Fruits Ltd, a business that buys honey from 5,000 farmers in very remote areas. While working in Zambia Mark noticed that many rural entrepreneurs couldn’t grow their businesses because they didn’t have access to the asset capital or equipment necessary to improve their output and productivity. It was then that Mark realized he could bridge the gap between these entrepreneurs and their full business potential by starting his own social business that would offer the missing equipment that they needed. Today he is the co-founder and director of innovation.
