A well known Social Entrepreneur based in Nairobi, Kenya. Ahmed Salim is the founder of Fluid Tees, a T-Shirt brand riding high on Twitter and Facebook marketing. He is also a social activist well known for his involvement in United Kenya (during the referendum), Kenya ni Yetu (for the constitution), Kenya Feb28 (singing of the national anthem), Pamoja (showing unity and joining together in prayers for Japan earthquake victims) and now the ongoing #FeedKe.

Other than these social endeavors, Ahmed is an accomplished marketer of repute, working as a lead marketer at a Nairobi agency. His candid demeanor and charisma are just a few attributes that endeavor him to many. I’m honored to have him on this interview. ____________________________________________________________________________________
