Episode notes

*This is episode is not investiment advice*

This episode is about 2 of the most underrated investment sectors in Africa: Education Technology (Ed Tech) and Property Technology (Prop Tech).

I had the pleasure of chatting with Ijeoma Ejimadu, an MBA student at Columbia Business School. She is also the founder of Ivery Arie, a NGO providing African women with the mentorship, resources, and education they need to thrive as entrepreneurs.

We discussed the massive potential of Ed Tech in Africa, highlighting companies like Nigerian Andela. Then we moved onto Prop Tech, discussing how it has the potential to transform the property market in Africa, creating jobs and contributing to economic growth.

Ijeoma also shared her journey and work with Ivery Arie, which was inspiring. She's passionate about empowering African women and creating a better future for everyone.

So, if you want to know more about these exciting investment sectors and IJoma's inspiring story, head on over and listen to the full episode now!
