The Foundation of ndovu
Radhika, has over 14 years of experience in the financial services industry where she advises clients on how to invest their savings at BlackRock (London) as a Relationship Director. When Radhika moved back to Kenya, she wanted to invest her savings in stock markets. She couldn’t find any digital solutions locally that provided access to local or global markets. The traditional options available in the market required high investment amounts, had long account opening processes and were expensive. Coming from an investment background where she could easily access investing from her phone, she set out to solve this problem. She researched how locals were investing and found the average Kenyan lacked financial education and lacked access to financial markets. This manifested with Kenyans holding their savings in cash. This is a problem, because holding savings as cash means Kenyans are losing purchasing power over time as inflation continues to grow.
Ro, CCO, brings his 19+ years of local knowledge, deep networks across Sub Saharan Africa and understanding of the Kenyan consumer to the team. Whilst working at the Nairobi Stock Exchange as the Head of Strategy, he launched the first mobile based government bond, M-Akiba, which was oversubscribed. He brings his learnings from this successful launch allowing us to achieve product market fit. He was tired of the lack of innovation within the investment ecosystem and has set out to disrupt the market.
To launch a digital product GP, our CTO, has over 20+ years of experience working at Sony and in building MVPs and scaling digital products. He is a serial entrepreneur who exited a company that he grew from 3 to 150 employees. Growing up in Italy, where financial education has come a long way, he has experienced first hand the impact education can have on people’s financial lives and how much it can improve one’s standard of living. He is passionate to use his talent to encourage change through communities to improve financial lives.
Together as a team, our vision for ndovu is to provide everyday Africans with the financial education and tools to create wealth responsibly and easy access to investment opportunities that grow wealth by 12-22% every year.
