What are you working on?
Timothy Kago Mweemba: I’m currently working on two main projects, my company wealth Culture which provides corporate training, and business development and my association young minds association which offers delinquent youth a second chance at life. Wealth Culture provides an innovative service we refer to as human resources incubation. This service provides start up entrepreneurs with legal, marketing and financial Advisors and a business developer and human resources manager in order to grow their Ideas into profitable business.
How did you come up with this idea?
Timothy Kago Mweemba: In my country a lot of people have resorted to motivational endeavors, i.e. seminars and motivational speakers. As a result a lot of young people are very motivated to start enterprising but don’t have the knowledge or resources to do so. This prompted me to create our human Resource incubation package that provides start up entrepreneurs with a full team to develop their idea into a cashflow positive Enterprise.
How is your company different?
Timothy Kago Mweemba: We are the only company that offers human resources incubation and we do it at an affordable price for start ups.
How do you creatively advertise?
Timothy Kago Mweemba: We mostly advertise through strategic partnerships but we also offer free branded cups to the stall owners selling by the local University in order to reach that market.
How have you impacted your community?
Timothy Kago Mweemba: I am a philanthropist. The association I founded has provided free tuition to over five schools in my community. We are currently mentoring high school students. We have a database of more than ten school dropouts that we are in the process of rehabilitating and reintegrating into the society. I have helped a number of aspiring entrepreneurs start their businesses for free and I mentor quite a few young people.
Timothy Kago Mweemba: I was expelled from school twice as a teenager the second time being during my final year as a IGCSE candidate. As a result I spent half the school year at home and only found a school a few months before examinations.
I learned that there is a time for everything, had I been patient and focused on my education at the time I would have done a lot better and that would have afforded me various opportunities.
Timothy Kago Mweemba: At age 18 I was asked to come share my story and motivate all the registered children with unfortunate circumstances(orphans,destitutes, needy students) in my community. I was the only speaker that was not an esteemed delegate and afterwards a lot of those children reached out to me for advice and still do to this day.
What did you learn?
Timothy Kago Mweemba: I learned humility is Paramount to success in life, not only financial success but emotional and personal development as well.
Best entrepreneurship advice you have?
