Mike interviews Jack Langworthy, Founder & CEO of Ninayo. NINAYO.com is an online trading platform targeting emerging markets, launched in Tanzania in May, 2015, and now has over 3500 users. Founder, Jack Langworthy, was in the Peace Corps for years in Tanzania and during his time there he became passionate about solving problems that plague the farming industry.
In a country of 50 Million people (slightly larger than California), there are about 10 Million family farms, and 40% of all the food they produce ends up rotting because of a terribly inefficient system of buying and selling. All this while 30% of the population in the country struggles with malnutrition. Jack tells us about his journey to solve it all!
