Kibret Abebe

Founder and CEO
Tebita Ambulance

Sirens blaring. Lights flashing. For most people living in a city, ambulances are omnipresent. But in Addis Ababa, home to nearly four million people, that wasn’t always the case – until Kibret, that is. Today, Acumen Fellow Kibret is the Founder and CEO of Tebita, Ethiopia’s first private ambulance company. Since Tebita was founded in 2008, the company has treated more than 65,000 people and trained 45,000 in emergency response. For Kibret, one of the most exciting parts of running Tebita today is not only saving lives, but also providing people with employment. Kibret has ambitions to expand his fleet of ambulances and increase the size of his team. Eventually, he’d like to expand beyond Addis and introduce an air ambulance system.

Kibret is also the president of Social Enterprise Ethiopia and is on the board of directors Addis Ababa Chamber of Commerce and Sectorial Association.
