Why Africa needs a free market

Meet the entrepreneur who empowers


This week I speak with Ugandan entrepreneur, Trinity Heavenz, a former street child who now employs over 25 people, many of whom were living in poverty before working at Era92, the company that “builds brands to build lives”.

This is a startling conversation about the benefits of the free market in a nation where people are afforded little opportunity. Trinity makes the case for business in Africa as a tool of empowerment, and says he believes the continent will learn from Western mistakes to come out as a superpower in the decades ahead.
