For Toukam, a Cameroonian native, life has been a combination of adventure, meeting and caring for people, entrepreneurial ventures, and persistence. He brought all these experiences to Persistent, as an outstanding venture builder, to work with exceptional entrepreneurs and drive social and environmental impact in Africa.
Caring for and working with people started at home in Cameroon, something Toukam learned to do very quickly, as he has five siblings and even more cousins. He spent a good deal of his life negotiating and problem solving, and quickly learned that people matter: how they think, what they care about, and the way they want you to engage with them. He enjoyed it then, and still does to this day.
