Our Story

DeutschConnect is the brainchild of Kumbirai Chipadza a Zimbabwean based in Germany.
After arriving in Germany as a refugee in 2016, Kumbirai found himself having to start from zero. But a passion for Entrepreneurship born out of 10year experience in the African business ecosystem drove him to continue by enrolling in the leetHub Refugee Entrepreneurship program and later Berlin Startup School. After watching the opportunities presented to startups and entrepreneurs in Germany as well as the Marshall Plan for Africa by German government ( 2017 ) which involves a new partnership for development, peace and a better future , Kumbirai founded DeutschConnect to provide information, knowledge sharing and consultancy to both the African and German end and create sustainable businesses, investments and partnerships which are fair and equitable.
