About this Episode

Hello again, Glocal Citizens! This week I catch up with Ghanaian-American entrepreneur, Leslie Bentil of Gutta Soles from his current home base in Switzerland (hence, we sound a little different this week over the phone line). GUTTA SOLES was established in 2012 in Accra, Ghana. The company's initial intention was to design a shoe that was durable enough to handle surface conditions in Africa. It is has since expanded into a social enterprise with eyes on transforming the welfare of families and delivering innovation to communities using simple indigenous tools.
