About me

Before joining the Foundation, I had the wonderful opportunity to work at a Technology Innovation Center where I lovingly referred to myself as the "Startup Midwife" (feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile for the official job title!). During my time there, I channeled my energy into supporting the growth of startups from various sectors and fostering vibrant communities within the African Tech Ecosystem. Even to this day, I happily dedicate my spare time to supporting a few exciting startups in the ecosystem. Being part of the Foundation allows me to pursue my passion for Community Development and create impactful Outreach Programs for communities all over the world.

My work

I work with the Program Management Team in the Product and Technology Department and manage the organization and execution of all Developer Outreach Programs.
