My name is Tim Kipchumba


I was born 450KM North East of Nairobi, in a small town called Kapsowar, among the Marakwet in the Great Rift Valley. My surname 'Kipchumba', is made up of prefix 'Kip', common among people of North Rift Kenya + 'white people' or' mzungu' most likely alluding to my dad having been born in the new mission hospital that was set up by white missionaries. This name has come to signify many more friendships and associations- from the mission hospital that my dad was born in, where my mum worked as a nurse, the missionaries that my mum worked with, the founders of Strathmore that were Kenyan wazungu (white Kenyans) who begun the 1st interracial college in the country and now more recently my partners at Questworks, wazungu associates and partners and clients. I could never have been given a better name to signify the interracial relationships that would characterize my life by the time I am 30 years.

Some lessons that I picked watching this movie  for any young entrepreneur  and professional: The best never […]

Grow a Camels’ hump & feet to grow Enterprise

Today i realize i don’t haveto  worry about that limitations that I have. I realize the camel has a hump as a source of gas like the car has a tank.It has ugly but padded feet to travel long distances. And lives in the desert where it finds less competition for food and is dangerous enough for 95% of the predators. I think if we have a hump or padded feat, we should move to use it in the dessert.If we don’t have these, we can look at what we have and just get a niche that suites our skill […]
