Please tell us your name, where your business is located and what is it that you do?

Hello, my name is Flavian Machimbirike, and I am the Co-founder and Managing Director of Logarithm Corporation, based in Harare, Zimbabwe. Our company specializes in providing micro-insurance, HR platform services, and custom software development services.

Tell us about how you got started.

We began our journey in 2019 with the vision of revolutionizing the tech industry in Zimbabwe, we spent two years diligently building platforms without any immediate customers and in 2021 we signed our first contract.

What makes your company unique?

What makes Logarithm Corporation unique is our dedication to innovation and customer-centric solutions. We prioritize understanding the needs of our clients and tailor our services to exceed their expectations. 

No business is without setbacks, can you tell us about a time when you faced a significant setback and how you recovered from it?

One significant setback we faced was the challenge of acquiring customers after investing time and resources into platform development. However, we adapted by enhancing our marketing strategies and actively networking within the industry. This resilience ultimately helped us recover and attract new clients.

How do you define success and to what do you attribute your success?

For me, success is not just about financial gain but also about making a positive impact on our clients and community. I attribute our success to our talented team, unwavering determination, and commitment to continuous improvement.

What's next for your business, what will it look like in 5 years?

In the next five years, we envision Logarithm Corporation as a leading tech firm in Africa, expanding our reach and portfolio of services while maintaining our reputation for excellence and innovation.

What do you think the future holds for Africa-focused entrepreneurs and advice do you have for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?

The future for Africa-focused entrepreneurs is promising, with increasing opportunities for growth and development. My advice to entrepreneurs starting out is to stay resilient, embrace challenges as learning opportunities, and never lose sight of your vision.

Owning a business while balancing a personal life can be challenging; how do you take care of yourself?

Balancing personal life with business responsibilities is indeed challenging. I prioritize self-care by setting boundaries, delegating tasks, and making time for hobbies and family.

What is your favorite quote or mantra?  What keeps you going?

A favorite mantra of mine is "Innovate, Adapt, Succeed." It reminds me to stay flexible and creative in navigating both professional and personal challenges.  

What is your favorite app or a business tool that you can't live without

When it comes to indispensable apps or business tools, Trello takes the lead for me. It enables me to meticulously plan and monitor all of my business endeavors.
