Eric Osiakwan was among the first industry connections I made when starting my company AB2020 a few years back.
Eric’s a tech entrepreneur and angel investor with 15 years of ICT industry leadership across the globe.

Now Managing Partner of Chanzo Capital, Eric is an authoritative voice on Africa’s tech industry; so I wasn’t surprised to see this recent TedX Talk in which he breaks down Africa’s new ‘Tech Rising’ narrative, and dispels the notion that all the continent has to offer the world is natural resources.
