    The Dream of Dbuntu

    Alvin Mbabazi and Brent Mandelkorn grew up 8,000 miles apart, but were randomly assigned as roomates at Trinity Univeristy, with two things in common: They both wanted to start a business, and they both live and breathe technology design, and human development.

    Boots on Ground

    In the summer of 2016, the two roomates, travelled to Uganda, with big dreams to disrupt Uganda's Agriculture Industry with modern methods and technology. While there, they spent time working with farmers to learn and better understand the market, it's dynamics, and the greatest challenges it faced.

    An Idea is Born

    Upon their return to the US, Alvin & Brent hit the capital development circuit and raised $21,500 from the Trinity University Stumberg Venture, and TCU Values & Ventures competitions in 2017. The team then entered into a Startup Accelerator Program to expand the team, and to bring their dream to life.

    Customer Discovery

    After graduation in May 2018, Alvin moved to Uganda full-time to lead the vision and direction of Dbuntu on ground. In July 2018, Dbuntu began beta testing their first solution in the market, as Data for Cattle   was implemented on a select focus group of early-adopter farmers.

  • 2019

    Product Launch

    In Febuary 2019, a comprehensive solution that solves the identified problems faced by farmers in Uganda was complete. The team began to set its focus on finding the product-market fit and building out a profitable business model based on fundamentals and sustainability.
