Working side by side with smart, coachable, and highly motivated individuals solving some of the biggest Logistics and Financing problems in Africa. If you survive Kobo, you will survive anything in life and I have witnessed two ex-Squad join global companies and most people that leave either go to Ivy league MBA or get 3X their salaries because they exhibit exceptional traits.
