Entrepreneurs launch telecommunication company


A group of young entrepreneurs last week launched a new telecommunication company called Focus Telecommunications at the Nathaniel Maxuilili Clinic in the capital.

The company was established after the entrepreneurs identified a need to deliver telecommunications services effectively to all Namibians, co-founder Henock Immanuel said.

“I joined the telecommunications world to bring about flexible, affordable and sustainable telecommunication services and solutions that will enable service providers, private and government institutions to bridge that gap and increase efficiency in service delivery, promoting transparency and accountability.”

“Our goal is to give back and grow the community as well as to give every Namibian the opportunity to quality and affordable internet services,” Immanuel said.

The company has donated Wi-Fi service access to Nathaniel Maxuilili Clinic in Okahandja Park for a lifetime at no cost.

The co-founder of the company, Elifas Haimbodi, mentioned the importance of entrepreneurship relating to coming up with solutions to problems that individuals and the nation face.

“Among our aims is to bring about solutions to challenges faced in the implementation of the National Development Plan 5 and Harambee Prosperity Plan related to the inability of providing connectivity to all Namibians because of the exorbitant cost of broadband, setting up national ICT infrastructures and the geographical location of the Namibian people,” Haimbodi said.

Officiating the event, the deputy minister of information, Engelbrecht Nawatiseb said, “The ministry of information, communication and technology is committed to actively raise the issue of synergies, mainstreaming and collaboration amongst all stakeholders. Our mission, as prescribed by the Government is to create an enabling environment for ICT development and access to information for socio-economic growth.”
