Intentional Serendipity at play…

If you know me well enough, I mention the the words Intentional Serendipity alot. Here is why. Well on to the story of Intentional Serendipity at play…

I met Peter Vesterbacka (Founder of Angry Birds) over 9 years ago in Berlin. He is a very humble and down to earth person, what you don’t know about him is that he is a massive supporter of young people!

He is the founder of SLUSH, the biggest entrepreneurship conference organized by young university students voluntarily.


What brought us together after 9 years, was LinkedIn message from Richard von Kaufmann discussing Ambitious Africa The focus again young people that same evening, I had a one hour conversation with Peter and was onboard immediately. So here we go together with the amazing Douglas Ogeto and Maija Lukka.

We finally get to collaborate together on Ambitious Africa – Kenya National Day. Happening on the 27th of April 2020 from 2pm – 5pm. See more details below:
