Chris Kwekowe is a highly rated young Nigerian Entrepreneur, technology consultant and most notably the founder and CEO of Satecube.
He sees the average young African as a global force to be reckoned with and his tenets are embedded in his effort to make ICT the propeller on which the former thrives.
Chris and his team introduced an E-learning platform, aimed at easing the complications in E-learning by allowing students to choose a field of learning for themselves among bountifully available choices and equip themselves with industry-relevant skills. This E-learning platform is called Slatecube.
Some time ago, a group of undergraduates signed up to the beta version of Slatecube. After their course duration, they had acquired flawless industrial skills and were later taken in as interns in a renowned ICT firm. Slatecube has produced skillful undergraduates who have already gone on to secure employment positions with ICT firms before their graduation.
Today, almost 200 visitors use Slatecube in acquiring useful knowledge in courses of their choice and partaking in their internship.
Additionally, Slatecube makes provision for approved courses and knowledge to be shared by experts in that field who may have undergone an initial course training. Course training can be paid for, making it a lucrative platform for tutors.
