Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
Johan and Kevin have been deeply rooted in entrepreneurial initiatives since their childhoods and are excited and confident to build upon their broad experiences as they scale Mobilized Construction. Johan has founded numerous non-profit organizations, most notably Play It On, which uses sports to promote fitness and development in rural communities in Africa. Johan has grown the organization from two volunteers to operating branches in Denmark, Germany and the United States and creating partnerships with groups in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana and Togo. Kevin helped launch Arizona’s first Chinese cuisine focused food truck, Jane’s Rolling Wok, 14 years ago with his family. Kevin has had a hand in every aspect of the business, from cooking fried rice to improving food ordering operations to launching a website and social media presence.
Johan and Kevin both agree that their most important lesson they have learned from their entrepreneurial ventures is to relentlessly seek the truth when faced with questions about their businesses. We feel that this mindset will be paramount as we build Mobilized Construction. We know we will be facing numerous questions as we refine our business model, research methodologies, and ultimately what success is defined as. We are committed to the journey to find these answers.
