Failing to Win: Hard-earned lessons from a purpose-driven start-up

Tuesday 8 March 2022, 2.30-4pm (UK time) 
Online event (full event details) | Watch back on YouTube

Speakers: Mike Quinn
Chair: Professor Jean-Paul Faguet


Hosted by Department of International Development 

Soon after graduating from LSE in 2009, Mike Quinn packed his backpack and flew to Zambia to co-found Zoona, one of Africa's first fintech startups. Over the next decade, Zoona scaled to become an internationally acclaimed brand that raised $35 million in venture capital and processed $2.5 billion in transactions for millions of underserved consumers. But his tenth anniversary wasn't the milestone he had in mind; instead of a party, he announced his resignation amidst a crisis that crippled the company and derailed its pursuit of its vision of "A Cashless Africa". Come hear Mike share his story about how to embrace and learn from failure 'in order' to win - in both business and in life.

Mike Quinn is a purpose-driven entrepreneur who co-founded Zoona, one of Africa's pioneering fintech companies, and now Boost, which powers growth for millions of entrepreneurs in Africa's informal economy. 

Jean-Paul Faguet is Professor of the Political Economy of Development at the London School of Economics, and Co-Programme Director of the MSc in Development Management.
