Yamandou is an experienced voice, satellite, and mobile telecommunications executive with a keen eye for emerging markets. He founded ASG Telecommunications in 1996 and oversaw its expansion from a mobile device wholesaler to a key voice and satellite network integrator and supplier for both mobile operators and NGO’s. As co-founder of T+, the second mobile operator in the Cape Verde Islands, he oversaw a significant development impact by modernizing and expanding the telecommunications services in the region, by promoting competition in the market and contributing to the increase of reliable and affordable communications services. In 2006, he crossed into the transportation industry, to integrate his technology background with a newfound consciousness of sustainable transportation. GoGreenRide was born out of a commitment to develop green transportation, cutting edge technology with outstanding customer service, to create a truly unique alternative and has recently been acquired by a larger transportation group in New York. He brings the experience of creating organization from the ground up, along with a diverse list of competencies necessary to get Kipay projects off the ground. Supplementing his work, Yamandou is also a co-founder and director of The Georges Malaika Foundation, a non-profit organization focused in providing educational opportunities for girls in The Democratic Republic of Congo.
