Inspiring Open launches with its very first episode focused on Anie Akpe, the founder of African Women in Tech.
Anie started her business for the same reason many entrepreneurs do – to solve a problem that impacted her firsthand. Through her work as vice president of mortgages and operations, managing a $1.5 billion dollar real estate portfolio which included Loss Mitigation and Mortgage Servicing, Anie realised people asked her a lot of questions about business, but little to none about technology.
It was then that she birthed her idea of teaching African women in the diaspora, and later in Africa, how to leverage technology and business to succeed in the world today.
She has more than 25 years of combined experience in her chosen fields and we are pleased to have her as our guest today.
