1. What are you hoping to get out of this trip? What are your expectations?
I am hoping to get enlightened about building successful start-ups, teams and other technological nitty-gritties associated with building things people need and finally networking; meet and cross-pollinate ideas with great minds and experts.
2. What are three things that motivate you?
Lots of things motivate me, but the top three would be; nature, building things that make people happy and setting/achieving crazy goals.
3. What’s the most exciting/proudest/interesting thing you’ve done?
The most exciting thing would be when I was given the task of building and deploying a custom voting system (hardware and software) for 25,000 people in 3 days. I had to get a team, get a plan, logistics, building and testing the software, and manage the voting process.
4. What next? What are your plans?
Next!, that definitely is building a social business that revolves round education and e-commerce. Got a couple of ideas and simply need to get a product ready, a team, and get the party started.
SALEM IS PARTICIPATING IN THE AMPION VENTURE BUS TRIP IN WEST AFRICA.
