The show was live and the conversation were thought provoking. Another amazing week  of technology talk and the debates just did not stop.

Week 31 featured a discussion on a local platform on which the Ghanaian ‘crowd’ could ‘outsource or solicit’ for funds for their business projects. The chat was with three young men who have been thinking about this very problem and have fashioned out a solution. They call it Fund Afriq. The gentlemen are Nii Nanka who is in charge of marketing for Fund Afriq, Frederick Yaw Gyebi, the Project Manager and Penrose Akoto who is in charge of technical.

We also have a chat with the founder of the Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology (MEST), Jorn Lyseggen who gives his perspectives about the assertions made by the founder of Virtual reality headset maker Oculus, Palmer Luckey who think that classrooms are broken and that children don’t learn the best by reading books. He speaks about other things too.

Mawuli Tsikata also shares some of the most striking technology stories of the week from across the world on the Trending segment of the show. Nana Ama Agyemang Asante also shares AUTOMATIC CALL RECORDER, AMAZE FILE MANAGER and SURE Universal Remote as the apps for the week.

Press play and enjoy.
