What do you think many people do at their early twenties? Explore life, have fun, go to parties and make their social life the bomb! Well, that was so not the case for Nomvula Mhambi – Founder of Disruptive Innovation. She founded her Disruptive Innovation after noticing the gap in the industry, building a full-service media communications and advertising social enterprise. By the time she was 22, her company was contracted by DSTV Zimbabwe to host their Big Brother events. Super awesome, right? We think so too!
Nomvula was recently featured on Forbes 30 under 30 2018 list and here’s what Forbes writes;
“When her mother couldn’t afford to take her to university because of the economic and political downturn in Zimbabwe, Mhambi turned to entrepreneurship. She registered a catering and events management company at age 19. She was later invited to work on a concert that featured Akon and Sean Paul. It opened doors for her. Mhambi also runs a hair and nail lounge and is also into agriculture, growing button and oyster mushrooms, which she supplies to a majority of Zimbabwe’s supermarkets and restaurants producing over 1,000 punnets per week. Talk of Jack of all trades and master of all! She employs 25 full-time and 12 part-time staff.”
We totally love Nomvula’s passion and drive!
