Mapopa Sopera Mwafulirwa, Malawian entrepreneur, is the Executive Director at Invest in Youth Initiative, an organization seeking to provide young people with opportunities, skills and knowledge to help develop Malawi and themselves.

In addition, Mapopa co-founded Mzuzu Entrepreneur Hub, an initiative that provides co-working space and assistance to start-up and early stage companies by linking them to a network of services for success.

Mapopa’s passion is to make an impact on Africa by enabling the enablers. He says: “It may take a while for Africa to be freed from poverty and dependency but every single step matters. And I am very sure that change is coming. I pray every single day to be one of the Africa’s new generations of freedom fighters and I hope that I will be there to witness the change that is coming for my people and my country.”
