Having started his electrical engineering business in Zimbabwe with an equivalent of US$75, Strive later diversified into telecoms whose first huddle was the refusal to grant him a license to operate Econet Wireless at that time. This was followed with a long court battle which resulted in a ruling, which led to the removal of the state monopoly in telecommunication and is regarded as one of the key milestones in opening the African telecommunications sector to private capital.

“Under Strive’s leadership, Econet has grown into a conglomate which is spearheading digital revolution across Africa and also pioneered financial inclusion with Ecocash which provides mobile financial services including savings and loans.” Innocent Kawooya, CEO HiPipo commented.

Strive leads successful ventures such as Liquid Telecom Group, Africa's largest satellite and fibre optic business. Liquid Telecom provides data, voice and IP supplying wholesale optical fiber, satellite and international carrier services to telecommunications operators across Africa.

In 2016, Strive announced that, Econet Wireless, was launching a new Pay-TV service called ‘Kwesé TV’ that will be built around Econet’s core capabilities of satellite communications, fibre optic networks, and mobile services to deliver a new TV experience and value across Africa.

Strive, has additionally mentored hundreds of youth, business managers and entrepreneurs and is a great example of the efficient use of social media to share experience, motivate and mentor the African continent.

In light of his contributions to Africa’s Digital Revolution, #DIAA2016 jury found it noble to award and honor Mr. Strive Masiyiwa whose strategic leadership has been very instrumental to the digital progression Africa has witnessed over the last two decades.
