After six years in industry, primarily in Foreign Exchange at an Investment Bank, I finally decided it was time to take the plunge and pursue my passion for entrepreneurship.  Through Frontier Market Scouts, I found a role with a start up in Nairobi, Kenya called BitPESA, where I could leverage my foreign exchange knowledge, and play an integral role in shaping a company from day one.  It’s a thrilling challenge not only to be on the front lines of a new enterprise, but to also affect meaningful change by reaching people who struggle to gain access to affordable financial services.
