We’re bringing to you episodes from the second season of podcast series: The Building the Future Podcast with Dotun Olowoporoku of Starta.
We have entrepreneurs, industry leaders, founders of startups who are writing the narrative that will be told about the African continent, telling their stories directly. This second season is in partnership with The British Council Nigeria.
Erik Osiakwan, managing partner at Chanzo Capital, a growth capital firm investing in Africa’s digital economy, is the guest on this episode.
Erik is a consultant for the world bank and serves on the board of Farmerline, Forhey, Teranga Solutions, Siqueries, Amp.it, SameLogic, eCampus, Bisa App, SeeSayDo and Wanjo Foods, – some of which are his investments.
In this episode, Erik discusses: how he became an entrepreneur and an investor; why Africa is moving on from consuming content and why it’s time to create our own tech; and the emerging middle class to the African market and how the ecosystem can take advantage of it.
