Isma Kayiza is a professional wildlife and nature conservationist with an MSc from the University of Pretoria and a BSc from Makerere University. He specialized in community-based conservation, human-wildlife conflict management, environmental impact assessment and human-wildlife zoonoses. In addition to the Resolution Fellowship, Isma has received many other awards, such as the MasterCard Foundation Scholarship, and the Mandela Washington Fellowship, due to his commitment to social responsibility through his work on eradicating poverty, hunger, and starvation in Uganda.  In 2017, he co-founded and worked on his first startup Sparky SEL which achieved food preservation through dehydration. In 2020, Isma co-founded a new company, Agrosage Tek Uganda Limited, that focused on creating an eco-friendly food preservation technology that could operate on renewable energy without carbon dioxide emission. In 2022, after 2 years of R&D, they finally launched the Spacom-1, a solar-powered air conditioner-operated walk-in cold storage room that enables rural farmers to afford cold storage food preservation.
