On Wednesday, January 20th, for the fourth episode of Building From Ground Up, we’ll be featuring Onyekachi Izukanne, Co-founder and CEO of TradeDepot.
Launched in 2016, Nigeria-based TradeDepot connects FMCG manufacturers with tens of thousands of retailers across Africa. The company works with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Unilever, Nestlé, and Kellogg’s.
Onyekachi is a seasoned entrepreneur with 17 years’ experience in technology and consulting, he spent 11 years in management consulting, specializing in consumer products, energy, and financial services.
Prior to TradeDepot, he co-founded C2G Consulting, a technology consulting practice which he bootstrapped to become the leading SAP Partner in West Africa by 2013.
Onyekachi is well versed in discussing the African business environment, SMEs, digital economy, business growth and the start-up industry. He is passionate about empowering entrepreneurs to grow their businesses, and on this episode, he will be sharing lessons from his entrepreneurial journey that point directly to this.
People ought to learn from those who have been there and done that, and gain insights for their own work. This is why the UK-Nigeria Tech Hub created this series in partnership with TechCabal, and it is the idea that informs every episode.
This is one event you mustn’t miss.
