I'm a software engineer originally from Seattle, WA. I worked for 10+ years as a software engineer for Microsoft, Visio and smaller companies in the greater Pacific Northwest. During this time, I did a stint with an internet incubator at the height of the dot-com boom and gained valuable insight into the world of venture capital and what it takes to get a technology startup off the ground. After exiting my own company, I packed up and moved to Buea, Cameroon where I mentored (and learned from!) tech entrepreneurs. I am the co-founder of VC4A and ActivSpaces, an open coworking space, innovation hub and early-stage incubator for Cameroonian techies. Big promoter of social change and innovation in Africa.
I thrive on creativity, open collaboration and the free exchange of ideas and connections. VC4A aims to break down the biggest barriers that prevent entrepreneurs from realizing their full potentials. I couldn’t be happier to be involved in building this platform.
Engineering and IT, Finance, Legal, Product Development, Strategy and Planning
I can offer the community my insights as a technologist with a special focus on Africa, mentoring for early-stage startups, financing advice and building connections in this space.
Legal, Sales and Marketing
I hope to connect with other like-minded entrepreneurs and investors who want to see the African business space thrive. Let’s shake this tree and see what fruit falls out.
