What we should know about you
Questions answered by David Wilson, Managing Director
1. What is your biggest learning as an entrepreneur so far?
I have had to learn to not be “married” to a technology/product, but to adapt to what the customer needs and what makes business-sense. As a designer of the product, this has been difficult, but very necessary!
2. What is the best thing about being a member of empowering people. Network?
Our team has benefited multiple times from training sessions hosted by the epNetwork. These have been valuable for the members that attend, but also for the whole team as they bring their learnings back and incorporate them into what we do.
3. Did you always want to become a social entrepreneur?
No, I was focused on engineering agricultural machine solutions for developing economies, but became an entrepreneur when I realized that it would require sustainable businesses driving the entry of efficiency-boosting products into the market.
