1. What's one thing you wish more people work on but not seeing from your application pool?
Would like to see more Agricultural companies, Agriculture is a significant % of our GDP and it's a really big market with problems that are not being solved. SaaS & BPO companies are another favourite of mine, I believe we can build global SaaS & BPO companies from Africa that will have significant revenue potential. In a future post I will be sharing insights into opportunities that founders should look into exploring.
2. If you were to build a company today, not Microtraction of course, what problem will you be solving? Put differently, top idea on your mind.
I'll would work on a crypto-hedge fund (or what I call a spec fund) -- super risky & speculative stuff but it's on the edge of technology so it's interesting & combines my original interest in investments with the benefits of having a higher IRR potential than venture investment. I'm also interested in battery packs like Tesla's powerwall as an alternative to electric grid, having seen the rapid increase in innovation within the space in the last 5 years. Non-tech I would focus on Agriculture or Manufacturing sectors.
3. How tall are you?
Haha! You are right I'm 6 ft 6
Bonus: I play football rather than basketball and captained my university's football team
