Danny believes that "Everything we create in life, we first create in our minds and that we can only change the world inside out"
Danny loves Africa because of its diversity, its wonderful people and its infinite potential. His first visit to Uganda, as the MD of a renewable energy crowdfunding platform, shattered the stereotypical image that he had of Africa. At the same time, he was frustrated about the lack of a level playing field and made it his mission to help change the one-sided story about African in the West and to help create more opportunities for ambitious/driven people.
