Despite his modest beginnings, Julius Mwale is a successful businessman and one of the most well-known African entrepreneurs. He is currently the primary investor in the Mwale Medical and Technology City (MMTC), a multi-billion dollar community-owned sustainable metropolis in Kakamega County, Kenya.
Mwale is a member of the Luhya tribe. He was born in Western Kenya in 1976. Mwale’s parents were business owners, and he went to school barefoot. He then studied electrical engineering and computer science at Columbia University. He joined the Kenya Air Force after completing his studies.
He is also the founder of the Mwale Medical and Technology City. He plans to build similar projects in other African countries. He has made a name for himself by negotiating mega deals. He is best known for his deals with President Bill Clinton, who has helped fund the development of a hospital in Mwale.
Mwale is also the founder of the Mwale Medicinal and Technology City, a large and multi-billion-dollar medical complex in Kakamega County, Kenya. The city includes a research park and a 5,000-patient capacity Hamptons Hospital. The hospital was built to ease the burden of Kenyans who travel to India for medical attention. The hospital has already created 5000 jobs.
Mwale has also met with President William Ruto of Kenya and President Julius Maada Bio of Sierra Leone. He has negotiated a deal to establish a battery plant in the mineral-rich Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to help power smart cities. Mwale will also be the key partner of US Engineering and infrastructure firm KE International, which will manufacture electric power storage batteries for smart cities.
Mwale is also the co-founder of SBA Technology, a company that developed wave-based biometric systems. He is a pioneer of two-factor authentication, which has become a major security feature in many companies. By 2006, the company had secured a partnership with the Bank of New York. SBA Technology is one of the first companies in the world to develop a biometric system based on the wave technique. The patent for SBA’s system was granted in 2005 and extended to researchers and universities. It is now used by several financial institutions around the world.
In the United States, Mwale has gained high net worth clients, such as JP Morgan Chase and the Bank of New York. He has raised over two million dollars in seed capital for the project.
Mwale was initially planning to build the Mwale Medical and Technology City in Nairobi metropolitan counties. The site was later moved to Kakamega. The project is now valued at $2 billion. It is comprised of five sectors. It includes an industrial district, a golf course district, a plaza district, an airport, and a great district, which focuses on home improvements. It also has a 10-megawatt solar power plant. The city is being built on 100% sustainable energy.
Mwale is a serial investor. He has invested $4 million in the medical city. He has also acquired land for the project. He hopes to expand the project to 18 locations in 12 African nations. He has a burning ambition to make a technological breakthrough in Africa. He believes that a wider market is available for technology than for other careers.
