Tom is looking to start a laundry business called Spotless Laundry Service in his community of the Busoga Region of Uganda.
In Uganda, most laundry is washed by women who go home to home for $2-$4 per house. Then the laundry is hung to dry. The home owner often sticks around to make sure nothing is stolen, even the clothes off the line. Tom knows there is a better way. In 2012, after seeing this exact scene play out, an idea sprouted. After years and many, many hours of hard work, in 2021 he finally developed a dryer that dries clothes in 40 minutes! Any great entrepreneur sees a need and finds a way to fill that need, which is what makes Tom an incredibly talented entrepreneur.
