Jerry More Nyazungu is an Entrepreneur and the Founder and Group CEO of the m&j group. He is very passionate about entrepreneurship and high business performance and is a results-oriented business leader who is passionate about driving results for business, both large and small.
Jerry grew up in the rural areas of Watsomba, in Mutare.
For high school, Jerry was educated at Marist Brothers in Nyanga for o level and Hartzell High School in Nyanga for his A levels.
Upon finishing his A-level studies, instead of going to university, Jerry took an unconventional route that was uncommon in his day. He chose to follow an alternative path to get educated.
He moved to Harare to start a new life independent from his home base in Mutare.
Upon arrival in Harare, he got his first job at Edgars stores where he worked for 6 months as a shop attendant until his contract got canceled the same day he was given an ultimatum to move out by the people he was living with.
Desperate to earn a living, he invested the money he had to start a vending business where he sold airtime, cigarettes, and sweets at corner Patrenta and Willowvale in Harare.
It was a harsh time that taught him some of the most valuable lessons he learned.
Getting started in business
While earning his living as a vendor, jerry took his savings to invest in his education until he became qualified as a chartered secretary which led him to get better prospects working for companies such as spar and zimbabwe publishing house.
After his corporate life was through, Jerry had a vision.
He found his passion in entrepreneurship which is what led him to start M&J, a company that was founded on the premise that he wanted to fix the economy by helping entrepreneurs, both big and small realize their potential.
From the onset until today, jerry managed to grow M&J from being a small consultancy firm to being a multi-company consultancy group with interests in media, tech, and accounting advisory.
From having a single employee with a $40 laptop, the company has grown to have over 50 employees working across three locations in 2 countries.
Jerry’s ultimate goal is to build the M&J Group into one of the world’s largest consultancy firms, employing over 2500 people.
