This is part 5 of the series titled ‘#TheBRIDGEMeets’ where we talk to different stakeholders on what it’s like to live and work in Rwanda. In this video, we talk to Henri Nyakarundi, the Founder & CEO of ARED Group.
Henri was born in Kenya and raised in Burundi. The company he started, ARED Group, created a mobile kiosk known as Shariki Hub. He moved to the US in 1996 to study computer science. After graduation, he soon realized that a 9-5 was not his calling, and he was an entrepreneur at heart. Over the next 10 years, he founded and developed trucking and construction businesses in both the US and Burundi. However, the green sector is his true passion. He has been developing ARED for the past three years, and as of 2013 has returned to Rwanda to start up this company full time.
