About the founder
Cedrick Júnior is an Angolan-Dutch entrepreneur based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He moved to the Netherlands at the age of 9 years.
In 2014 Cedrick graduated from Windesheim, Applied Sciences University with a Business degree in International Business with a specialization in Doing Business in Africa.
Upon graduation, Cedrick was asked to join Fugro, the world’s largest provider of technical data and advice on topography and environmental conditions. During his time at Fugro, Cedrick worked in Angola, Ghana, Mozambique, South Africa, and São Tomé e Principe, where he helped Fugro lay the foundation that enabled the company to support its clients with local resources.
In 2018, Cedrick left Fugro. He looks back to this time with a great sense of joy and accomplishment. Cedrick is most proud of the job opportunities that were created due to local content development, which enable individuals to pull themselves and their families out of extreme poverty. This inspired Cedrick to embark on a life new journey, called “Imara Vision”.
With this entrepreneurial step, Cedrick wants to strengthen the socio-economic position of Africa by providing services and products, and investing in solutions that inevitably contribute towards the development of Africa. Humbly said, Cedrick wants to become a true agent for change in Africa.
