They defeated all 8 Ivy League schools, and were the only team in the U.S.A. to advance! That’s quite the accomplishment, and is a milestone for young entrepreneurship! Since then, they have finished in the 2nd round of judging for the Forbes $1M HeroX competition and were also 1 of 6 in the world to be accepted into the IBM Smartcamp hosted by the Techstar’s Barclays Accelerator. Inspired to create Tembo simply because they were bored, along with Phil Michaels, CEO, They anticipated the upcoming mobile phone boom in the Continent of Africa, and are aiming this project to help educate families, starting with giving the parents the skills they need to educate their own children! They offered a tip for those aspiring to launch their own careers. “Stop settling for a life that is less than what you are capable of living.” Which is a very great modicum of wisdom for those aspiring for more.
