In this week's virtual fireside chat series, we will be joined by two phenomenal entrepreneurs Roy Njoka, CEO, and Cofounder of Digiduka and Samir Ibrahim, CEO and Cofounder of Sunculture.
Tune in as we discuss how these two entrepreneurs were able to build their startup products that are loved by their customers, the thought process and the work that goes behind building such products and their respective experiences in building their startups from the super early stages to the relatively advanced stages in the East African market.
As usual, come prepared to learn, to ask thought-provoking questions, and invite your friends.
