When your twitter handle is @africatechie, what does that say about you? Ms. Enonchong shows us daily through her tweets, the impact techies can have in Africa. Known for her work in promoting technology across Africa, the AppsTech CEO continues to set the bar for technological innovation in Africa. Due to her hardwork, Ms. Enonchong has been recognized through several portals including, Global Leader for Tomorrow with the World Economic Forum, 10 female tech founders to watch in Africa by Forbes, African Digital Woman of the Year by Digital Women, and many more. In addition to that, she is the founder and Chairperson of the Africa Technology Forum, a member of the board of directors with the Salesforce.com foundation, as well as a board member with VC4Africa. The Catholic University of America graduate has a background in Economics but eventually ventured into tech. She is quite an inspiration for young African women globally.
What do you do when you have a brilliant idea and see the potential of its success? You resign from your 9-5 and work as hard as possible to see it come to fruition. This is exactly what Mr Fouafou did. The HartNamtemah CEO gave up his job at Nortel to create Vertamin Inc, which gave us Gourmandia.com. This Computer Engineering graduate from the University of Ottawa, is using his entrepreneurial knowledge to invest in Cameroonian startups. He is an investor with Cameroon's own Kiro'o games, as well as an advisor with Njorku. In addition, he is an active mentor with VC4Africa. I am looking forward to more of Mr. Fouafou's work in Cameroon. In the meantime, you can follow him on twitter for constant updates.
