Mike Shaw is currently providing services as a senior adviser to the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Africa team with a particular current focus on the development of a new East African institution called Msingi.
Msingi is an ambitious and innovative new East African industry development organisation aiming to contribute to the structural transformation of East Africa’s economies by supporting the growth of industries with high potential for competitiveness in the region.
The Gatsby Charitable Foundation and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) have committed GBP 30 million in total to fund Msingi’s first 5 years, and Gatsby is in the process of setting up the organisation through 2015.
Mike is helping Msingi primarily with appraisal and strategy development for potential work in the East African aquaculture, soybean, livestock feeds and broader white protein agricultural sub-sectors.
