WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE,
My goal is to guide entrepreneurs and investors to achieve their potential by pushing the boundaries of what is possible. I am passionate about Startups, Venture Capital, and finding ways to promote development in Africa through business. In particular, I have a strong interest in AI, Aerospace, Infrastructure, Real Estate, and Fintech.
This blog will cover startups and VC as of May 2022. Past topics include leadership and business development.
A bit about me:
My name is Dan Idhenga and I am a London-based Private Consultant and Principal at the King’s Alumni Angel Network. I have a keen interest in Startups, VC and Angel Investing. Having lived in ten countries, I’ve developed a global mindset and sharp attention to detail that has provided me with numerous opportunities to undergo personal and professional growth.
As a Principal at the King’s Angel Network, I identify, support, and help to invest in startups with potential for positive global impact. This is done thorough due diligence, regular VC partner meetings, and through producing in-depth presentations. These skillsets help me to conduct meetings with the King’s College London Venture Capital Research Fellows (KVCRF), whom I have trained to become VC research Analysts, in collaboration with King’s Business Club. I have also represented the King’s Angel Network through moderating professional events at King’s College London, which have featured notable Venture Capitalists and Startups.
I also serve as the Vice President of the Bonny Vaino Idhenga Foundation (BVIF). Since 2014, I have coordinated donations of critical items to underserved communities in Namibia, including incubators for newborn babies, food items, clothing, mattresses and more. I collaborate with foreign patrons to ensure proper distribution of donations to vulnerable beneficiaries. I am currently working with a Himba village in northern Namibia to establish a vocational training centre for youth empowerment.
While living in New York, I was a founding member of ConfirmD by BuddyCheque, a healthtech startup that was acquired in December 2021. I believe that this successful exit was the product of years of experience gained from previous endeavours including at In Case Audio, a startup I co-founded in 2016. I’ve learned the ins and outs of bootstrapping and launching a company under the guidance of Angel Investors and VCs. As a result, I gained experience in prototyping products, conducting primary market research, and leading teams.
In addition to my startup interests I provide private consulting services to clients who require help with various types of business functions. In particular, I am proficient in business consulting, logistics, and startup consulting.
