M y passion is for the intersection between business and IT. In particular business processes and operations, and for improving these through the clever application of IT. Thinking through process mapping and optimization is my strong suit.
As a manager my main focus is on innovation, collaboration, employee retention, and training. My approach is that of mentorship where I try to empower the individual employee to excellence through mentoring and instilling a learning culture.
As a business leader in both Finance and Engineering, my strength is more in detail orientation and documentation. Building scalable tech operations is my strength. I am the introvert that really enjoys spending hours and hours on the details that will streamline a given process.
Through my activities in East Africa I have gained a great understanding about how the East African society works, and especially how SME’s, and therefore the people and their financials in the region.

As a previous startup founder himself with 13 years focusing on technology-for-finance, Tribbe offers the complexities of African transactional behavior and the intricacy of the close knit relationships mainly found on the continent together into a single product. The opportunity Mike has to leverage his duality in Finance and Technology for consumers has placed him in the intersection of technology and the culture of money in Africa.
