Nelson Mbembe
Democratic Republic of the Congo


Nelson is the CEO and founder of a tech startup called 243 Creative Lab. He is also the Co-founder of Grace International Market «GRACIM», an E-commerce startup that helps local producers sell their product countrywide and globally. Nelson’s hope for GRACIM is to become a multinational e-commerce company like Amazon by training and employing young people who are not fortunate enough to find work after studying in a country where stability is steadily increasing. Upon completion of the Mandela Washington Fellowship, Nelson plans to launch 243 Zando, a Marketplace like Amazon that will allow different senders to sell directly from the platform.
