This week Eric and Joey are joined by serial leaper Clark Varin.
Clark is the co-founder of Muvule Financing LTD, a microfinance institution in Uganda that invests in micro, small, and medium-sized businesses, in addition to the co-founder of Minnesota-based Muvule LLC, a microfinance investment vehicle focused on investing in MSME companies in East Africa.
The goal of his companies is the eradication of poverty by empowering entrepreneurs in emerging markets through financial inclusion. He believes that the only way to close the $5.2 trillion gap between the need and access to credit is through a for-profit business model that maximizes the social and economic impact of his investors' money.
Clark's previous businesses include Travel Young LLC, a high adventure travel agency for young adults and a freelance digital marketing/copywriting agency.
His work has been seen in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal, the Entrepreneurs Organization, and the Minnesota Business Magazine, where he was named one of Minnesota's "Top 35 Under 35 Entrepreneurs" and "Young Entrepreneur of the Month" in August 2018.
He is a casual speaker on entrepreneurship at schools in Africa, and impact investment groups in the USA. He lives in both Milwaukee, WI and Minneapolis, MN.
