1. What made you want to get on board the bus?
What made me want to get on the bus was to meet other entrepreneurs, tech experts and some investors for my startup and projects.
2. What are you hoping to get out of this trip?
I hope to share some ideas with other entrepreneurs and tech experts in order to improve African people’s lives with technologies. Then to meet investors, talk with them about some projects, which could change African people’s lives and I hope to benefit from funding.
3. What are the three things that motivate you?
The three things that motivate me are: innovation for Africa, tech development in Africa and financial support.
4. What’s the most exciting/proudest/interesting thing you’ve done to date?
The most interesting thing I’ve done to date is my mobile application “Natural Health,” which is an application that provides some natural tips to have effective health. And then my recent application “Booking Travel,” which allows people to book their travel tickets with their phone and have a mobile payment.
5. What next? (Do you have any future ventures/ideas/projects you’re working on?)
The next thing for me, is to register my startup and get all legal documents. Then find some partners, to have the resources to launch the innovative products (applications) we are working on. We want to be a technological reference in Africa for mobile applications.
