Zagace Founder & President, Mubarak Muyika, joins 'Influencers with Andy Serwer' to discuss his biggest role models in business.

Video Transcript

ANDY SERWER: Who are your role models, Mabarak, in terms of tech CEOs and leaders and maybe people in other fields of endeavor. For instance, Gates and Zuckerberg dropped out of Harvard. Do you, do you look to them?

MUBARAK MUYIKA: I'd say I look to Bill Gates quite a bit from an aspect of competitiveness and from an aspect of focus, because he has this ability to look at things and look at them to a level that, until he gets what he wants. But I think what I borrow mostly, who I borrow mostly from is Warren Buffett, because I think Warren Buffett represents, he represents a mature American business person that is so neatly organized and thorough and to the point.

ANDY SERWER: Have you ever met Warren Buffett or been to the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting?

MUBARAK MUYIKA: No, but I will one day.

ANDY SERWER: And what about the rest of your career and your life, Mubarak? You're only 26 years old. What are your aspirations? What do you hope to achieve over the next decade and throughout your lifetime?

MUBARAK MUYIKA: You know, I think the most important thing is to figure out a way in which I can make enterprise software basically accessible to all. That's around the world, just not in Africa. Thanks to statistics and newly acquired information that informs insight on multiple things. So I think for the foreseeable decade that, I think, is what I really want to achieve, because what we've been able to do is make enterprise software standard, which was something that was really not possible in the past.

ANDY SERWER: And last question, Mubarak if you could ask Warren Buffett one question, what would it be?

MUBARAK MUYIKA: I'd say investment, but then, yeah, I'd say investments.

ANDY SERWER: You'd ask him about investment?

MUBARAK MUYIKA: Right. Not actually investment, but actually, ask him to invest with me.

ANDY SERWER: Oh, you would ask him to invest. Right. Good one. Love it. All right, we're going to have to leave it there, Mubarak Muyika, who is the founder and president of Zagace. Thank you so much for joining us, Mubarak.

MUBARAK MUYIKA: Thank you.

ANDY SERWER: You've been watching Influencers. I'm Andy Serwer. We'll see you next time.
