Hey there,

I’m Sunya. I grew up in a small fishing town in Kenya. My parents came from two seemingly incongruent backgrounds that influenced my life’s work. My maternal family were a scholarly group, indulging in philosophy and ancient Eastern wisdom. My paternal side were Indian tradesmen who emigrated to East Africa with colonial settlers. I grew up finding myself passionate about entrepreneurship and investing, and equally obsessed with the bigger questions of life and our existence.

A few things I’ve done:

  • Managed seed and venture capital funds targeting African tech startups
  • Built a textile supply chain connecting alpaca herders, yarn makers and manufacturers of Peru
  • Designed ecotourism businesses in Ecuador and Mexico
  • Sold and marketed for a software startup in the US that grew to an eight digit valuation
  • Traveled solo through 30+ countries

I spend most of my time on:

  • Blockchain and crypto investments
  • Running a farm in Kenya
  • Reading, writing and podcasting for curious minds and entrepreneurs

I embrace my inner polymath and find my truths by connecting knowledge from across the disciplines. These are the greats that inspire me –

To understand myself:

  • Jiddu Krishnamurti
  • Eckhart Tolle

To understand the world:

  • Allan Watts
  • Terrence McKenna
  • Sam Harris

Human centric innovation:

  • Buckminster Fuller
  • Jacques Fresco
  • Douglas Rushkoff
  • Jeremy Rifkin


I aim to bring clarity on who we are, the world around us and how to serve humanity. Check out my essays and podcasts (when I launch, hopefully soon…), and for exclusive access to my best work submit your email to enroll in the newsletter I send out every once in a while
