Scott Pedzai Sakupwanya – The Man Behind The Successful Commodities Company ‘Better Brands’

Some companies are very prosperous, and there is a prominent businessman. Scott Pedzai Sakupwanya sets that example of being one of Zimbabwe’s most influential businessmen. For more than 20 years in this industry, he has become one of the best known commodities traders in the nation. Mr. Pedzai Sakupwanya has established a powerful and professional reputation for himself over the years at the company in one of the world’s developing nations. I was very fortunate to interview Mr. Pedzai Sakupwanya!

Growth Mindset and Integrity

Being the 1% today it has not been easy for Scott or ‘Better Brands’ to get to where they are; as a group they have encountered various obstacles and occasions when it appeared that they might not make it. Nevertheless, Scott, a positive serial entrepreneur stayed the course on the aspirations and indeed the vision for the company. I’ve also been fortunate to have such a talented relationship with my team that has conspired with me to embrace my vision, although God was always my greatest supporter, my assurance and optimism in him as well as his generosity has carried me much further from where I began. 

Mr. Pedzai Sakupwanya constantly aims to give a reasonable and equitable price to the miners of whom he purchases gold and continually makes payments on time. He is a man with a heart of gold who follows the 12 laws of the universe evidently shown as he also contributes across several community outreach programs in order to help both the people he cooperates with and many others in the general public that are less privileged. Additionally, Mr. Pedzai Sakupwanya seeks to create a constructive contribution to the nation overall, striving toward the government’s larger vision of being a western country by 2030.

Adaptations Is Key

Gold trading, acquisitions, in other words, buying and selling gold is Scott’s major business. It is the ‘Better Brands’ group’s largest cash cow. He stated “I wouldn’t say I picked this road; rather, it adopted me, or perhaps, it was God’s destiny for me”. After failure to pursue his studies owing to financial constraints, he encountered a path when he was still a youth to begin in this industry. As a result, he ended up working for a gentleman in the very same occupation as he, and was grateful enough to have been nurtured by him as well evolve into the person he is presently. “Better Brands has progressed into mining, construction, transportation, and logistics, with plans for expansion into hospitality in the near future” he said.


Religious Connections, Gratitude and Overcoming Challenges

There was a point when Mr. Pedzai Sakupwanya experienced a financial roadblock because he didn’t have enough operating capital to keep the business going. He “surmounted this by expanding into other business endeavours and receiving assistance from individuals” who believed in him, for whom he will also be forever indebted. “My trust in the Almighty ultimately guided me across adverse times, since it preserved my morale high; without faith, I would not have been where I am today” he stated serenely.

Scott Pedzai Sakupwanya’s Successes:

  • Most Influential Young Corporate Director of the year 2020 in the morning sector in Zimbabwe
  • Young Innovative Project Director of the year in the mining sector 2020
  • Honorary Doctorate by the American Heritage University of Southern California 2020
  • Chairman for Gold Buyers Association Board 2021
  • Nominated for the African Icon International Awards 2021

Scott Pedzai Sakupwanya’s Tips:

  • “Have a higher power that you believe in, that will guide your principles and order your steps. Mine is the ‘Almighty God’ the creator of the universe.”
  • “Always believe in your dream, if you can dream it, you can live it. Regardless of your background, you can make it.”
  • “Never give up, no matter what happens, just keep going. If it means crawling till you are back on your feet, just keep moving forward.”
  • “You are the main character in your book, or play. Always become your biggest cheerleader. You should always look out for YOU and make sure that person is well taken care of because no-one will do it for YOU.”
  • “Always ask for help when you need it, be open to criticism and always be willing to listen to your team, there is an African proverb that say, if you want to go fast, go alone. But it’s you want to go far, go with someone.”

Mr. Pedzai Sakupwanya couldn’t have said it any better. He is an incredible and humble man with integrity. He lives by the law of reciprocity, giving back to the less fortunate yet being a high performance person with astounding awards to his name. He has revolutionized this industry with his work ethics and impeccable personality to endorse the dreams he still has yet to achieve. Scott Pedzai Sakupwanya, in a nutshell, is the future.
