Hello people, we are glad reaching you again from the Rebrand Nigeria Campaign Team!
Today, we are throwing more spotlights on this young innovator from Abia State, Chris Kwekowe, who rejected an employment offer from Bill Gates to join the Microsoft Corporations workforce.
Through Slatecube.com, Chris has trained and prepared over one million African youths to provide professional roles in both local and international organizations.
He strongly advocates for Africapitalism as he believes that Africans are the key to solving the problems of Africa, and that Slatecube can only become more prosperous by helping others.
Apart from Nigeria, the Slatecube team has also hosted their “Up-Skill Conference” in some other African countries, including Nairobi, Kenya, Gaborone and Botswana.
At 23, Chris won the Anzisha Grand Prize of $25,000 with his social innovative startup, Slatecube.com in 2015. He also won the Most Innovative Enterprise Award by Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka.
Chirs kwekowe has been hosted on CNN, BBC, ITNews, MIT’s Website and CNBC Africa.
Above all, Chris is a Nigerian! Can’t you see that Nigerians are good people?
