Impact Across Continents: Kahindo Mateene of KAHINDO Shares Her Funding Story

“It’s about fashion and design, of course, but it’s also about working with women and creating sustainable jobs with living wages, while showing the world the beautiful work that African artisans produce,” says Kahindo Mateene, owner of KAHINDO Holdings, LLC, which is known for the eponymous fashion brand, KAHINDO. She founded the company in 2017 and soon learned a lesson that many entrepreneurs face: Self-financing can only go so far and eventually, to grow, you have to find the right funder to help you achieve your vision.
