The word “investment” gets thrown around a lot my way lately, and a lot of people aren’t sure what it really means. Pic via @big.toys ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
“Investment is time, energy, or matter spent in the hope of future benefits actualized within a specified date or time frame. Investment has different meanings in economics and finance. -

In economics, investment is the accumulation of newly produced physical entities, such as factories, machinery, houses, and goods inventories.

In finance, investment is putting money into an asset with the expectation of capital appreciation, dividends, and/or interest earnings. Most or all forms of investment involve some form of risk, such as investment in equities, property, and even fixed interest securities which are subject, among other things, to inflation risk.” ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Finally back home in the #Bronx and just so happy to be surrounded by my favorite books from #whatiloveaboutbeingqueer to #Mandela to my favorite #Art books featuring #Basquiat & #hankwillisthomas, non fiction life changers by Zainab Amadahy and works of fiction by #EdwidgeDanticat. I pull from all of them in all my work and as I prepare to head out on a month straight of #workshops, #keynotes, art exhibitions and events, I am grateful for how prolific we have been in our resistance. In this way our inheritance as Black, Indigeneous & People Of Color is so rich, I am grateful for the opportunities to cross pollinate our greatness between countries and communities. I firmly believe that radical transformation is most possible at the intersection of the streets and the classroom; when we recognize that we are all valuable and deserving of respect, that lived experience is wisdom when given the space to self reflect and that change is not only possible but inevitable. I will be adding all my dates to my website www.kimkatrinmilan.com #artisteducator #entrepreneurs #communityeducator #writer #speaker #host #publicintellectual #publicresearcher

There is another Africa

@chris_mungai deconstruct’s CNN’s African Startup coverage and makes an excellent point:

The point is; an African start-up need not feature the mandatory colourful beads, old tyres, scrap metal and a kitenge bowtie.

For example, if one keeps to the “small” stuff, there’s MERGIMS, developed by two Rwandans, an international money transfer service that is supported by a user-friendly phone application and website allowing for swift money transfers.

There’s myAgro in Senegal is helping small-scale farmers who are far away from banks to save for seeds and fertiliser, by using the familiar “scratch card” concept – farmers buy a scratch card and top up their myAgro account on their mobile.

At planting time each account is reviewed and based on the amount saved myAgro delivers seeds and fertiliser directly to the farmer’s village. 

There’s the massively successful e-commerce firms like Jumia and Konga, which are pulling off an incredible logistical feat involving coordinating thousands of online orders and running a fleet of hundreds of motorcycles and small vans to deliver goods in from warehouses in ten African countries.

There’s incredible scientific research going on in Africa, with real life applications, for example, the Moyo Waterfront Restaurant and Urban Farm in South Africa, consisting of a market arcade covered by an array of solar panels that powers the stalls during the day, it also doubles as shading device for the space below.

The market stalls are a cluster of pre-fab modular units, and the urban farm uses an aquaponic system, offering fresh off-the-wall greens, vegetables as well as tilapia fish for the restaurant. 

There’s Faso Soap, developed by students from Burundi and Burkina Faso, an innovative mosquito repellant solution made with natural, locally available ingredients. This solution, added to locally manufactured soap, provides an accessible, low-cost anti-malarial tool; the soap is enriched with a mixture of local herbs and leaves a scent that repels mosquitoes off the skin. 

There’s even a shape-shifting wheel that enables one to drive in all kinds of terrain, a one-size-fits-all solution for load-carrying carts, bikes or vehicles in areas with poor infrastructure that uses the principle of a scissor jack, and arraying a series of them around a circle. 

The wheel can either grow shorter and wider, or taller and narrower, as the mechanism is manipulated.

There are other ways of being an African start-up.

Never Eat Alone: Day 4 with Nicole Simon & 80 Geek Girls

You have to love the Geek Girls - doesn’t matter if you meet them in Dublin, London or Berlin. They know how to set up perfect networking events and - most of all - how to celebrate. More or less exactly one year ago the first Geek Girls Carrots event took place in Berlin. Today, the meetup founders Paulina and Valentina, invited up to 100 women in tech … and some men …. to celebrate the anniversary with some inspiring talks and of course pizza, beer and wine at Axel Springer Plug & Play. I have to admit that the Geek Girls Carrots events are my favorites - always nice talks, always new people, always nice location and always some familiar faces you can reconnect. 

Today I met some many new persons that it has been hard to decide which person to portray in my daily blog: Clarissa Steinhoefel, founder of #StartupSafary that nearly got standing ovation for her talk? Urte Zahn? She is in the smart energy sector and talked about career choices. I also met a few of the regulars again, like Melanie from Software AG that spoke at one of the last meetups at Soundclounds Headquarter. At the end, I picked Nicole Simon, one of the most active networkers I know.

The benefits of #nootropics are becoming more well-documented as studies into them continue but, like any #supplement, some people will see more benefit from a product like #Neuroflexyn than others will. Quite a few people take #supplements to help them with various body functions, but they often neglect to take anything to help their brain.

Unfortunately, that means they could be losing out on more #productivity, #satisfaction, and #motivation in their life. There are three main groups who should really consider taking a #nootropic, and who might see the most value from doing so.. #entrepreneurs #students #athletes
