The trajectory of the world we live in demands that business and innovation be technology driven, with nothing else involved. The tech industry has been made out to seem different from the creative space. However, we think that creativity is an attempt to turn something on its own head in the simplest and coolest way possible, regardless of the industry.
In light of this, we have listed 5 women that we who are doing admirable creative work in the technology space in Nigeria.
We love Bilkiss! She is the woman behind WeCyclers who has been able to make waste look like a huge truck of fun. We know how tough it is to take out the trash, on a normal day. But this team has made it look good! WeCyclers handles household recycling service using a fleet of low-cost cargo bikes. Bilkiss and the WeCyclers team have over time built a community of environment loving and conscious people. It takes a lot of insight and creative muscle to be able to do that.
Chioma is the founder of TechHerNG, a social organisation simplifying Technology and building a community for women to embrace technology without stress. Leveraging social media, events and partnership, TechHerNG has been able to create an atmosphere that makes it easy for women to get involved with Technology in a simple onboarding process. Chioma is creating an everyday Techsphere for women and we think she rocks.
