Tom Edison Shilongo

2019 Fellow from Namibia

Tom Shilongo holds an honors degree in Political Studies and is an entrepreneur who lives by his motto "I rise by uplifting others." He is the founder of Launch, a publication, and a platform that offers digital marketing to businesses in Namibia. Tom is also a board member of Imprint-Organization Namibia, a non-profit publishing organization that is born out of a need and scarcity of published Namibian literary works. Upon completion of the Mandela Washington Fellowship, Tom plans to turn Launch from a national to continental publication, telling stories of entrepreneurs across the African continent.
