#CITITRENDS S04 EP 6: The Truth about being a technology entrepreneur in Ghana

Show Promos 92Technology literacy is the soul of #CitiTrends.

However, every now and then , we need a wake up call!

We need someone to jolt us into understanding.

That was the sole purpose of this week’s show.

Josiah Eyison, Co-founder and CEO of iSpace. A man passionately driven by social impact was on the show to talk about the truth about being a technology entrepreneur in Ghana.

He spoke about collaborations and partnerships gone wrong, he touched on financing and grants plus so much more.

He did not hold back and that was the magic of it all.

Farida touched on Snapchat’s latest updates and how Farmerline and Mpharma were named the two top most innovative companies in the world!

There was ‘Shush’ and ‘My Ordio’ as the new apps for the week with Jeff.

Enjoy the show.

Show Promos-39Agriculture is indeed the backbone of the economy of any nation.

But how exactly is that true on the continent?

How much tech is being applied across the continent on farms and plantations?

Famerline is 5 years this year and so Lilly and Emmanuel joined me to discuss what the years have been so far and what lessons have been learnt. They also shared some insight on new practices on the continent.

Following our conversation about the Accra Digital Centre, it seems the tenant have a different notion of how the centre should be run based on their experiences.

Two of them, Duke and Kingsley, joined me in the studio to shed some light on the realities of working from there.

Together these three gave some of the best education on the topic you will find anywhere.

Enjoy.
