Hey Dreamers!

In this episode, I interviewed Zakaria Jaiathe(Zak), the co-founder and CEO of WAANDA, the SaaS-enabled B2B marketplace that facilitates trade between African SME producers and European retailers.

Zak was born and raised in Safi, Morocco, and in 2012, he moved to France for his study, and now he is based in Berlin in Germany. Before he started WANNDA in 2021, he founded Xibit in 2016, an award-winning augmented reality startup, and before founding Xibit, he worked as a technology executive advisor for the SAP leadership. Zak also won several prestigious international awards and was mentioned several times in top magazines such as Forbes. 

His journey is so so inspiring, so if you want some booster to go after your dream, THIS is the must-listen episode. Please enjoy!
