About James Kaguima

My Story

James Kaguima’s social entrepreneurship journey started from a young age, where he was the youngest youth worker in his area, and was tasked into securing a grant from UnLtd. to help coordinate an event that had a positive social impact in his local area. He managed to successfully secure funding through pitching his idea to UnLtd. and they awarded him a seed grant to set up a social enterprise that will host a community sports event that brings together young people and grownups. Ever since then he has been involved in numerous projects that had positive social impact in the community & continued to pursue his Entrepreneurial endeavours.

He is now legal professional turned Social Entrepreneur. James’ transition from law school into social entrepreneurship started during my final year in Law school where I started selling Wooden watches, and for every watch I sold a tree was planted. He then delved into the world of startups and tech, and won multiple competitions and realised he had a talent for entrepreneurship & being innovative. This is where he realised his life purpose can cross disciplines, and does not need to be boxed into one cliche career path, but one filled with many ventures.

 

His main inspiration for Entrepreneurship and business in general came from my Grandfather, who became a Real Estate Developer in my home country Kenya. His Grandfather grew up being inspired by hearing about rag to riches stories of how prominent individuals that built their own businesses & scaled them to new heights. James plan on applying their work ethic to my own journey and help others along the way.

 

In 2019, James founded Hasani Watches, during my Law School exam season, which is a brand started with the goal to promote an eco-friendly lifestyle and reduce wastage of wood resources and utilise it for a purpose by offering handcrafted Wooden watches. We partnered with a Charity called One Tree Planted, so for every watch sold we planted one tree in honour of our customer’s sale. (I was always involved in social entrepreneurial projects when I was young, but this was my first ecommerce where I invested money that I have raised and gained a return on my investment into the watch brand). You will always remember your first sale, treasure it as it is no small feat.
