The 2018 African Women in Technology (AWIT) Conference, Nairobi, theme is “Be Bold”, so we are asking our female leaders and guests – panelists, speakers, moderators, and mentors – to reflect and share the early days of their careers, advice for younger women in tech and/or the most crucial need of their businesses today.
These women have proven commitment to building and scaling tech businesses or growing social enterprises on the continent and they come from diverse backgrounds and sectors with different levels of experience.
It is our hope that these short interviews show a glimpse into the everyday lives of African women in tech and builds bridges between organizations and individuals who are looking to partner, fund, mentor or simply interact with these pioneering women.
This week we shine the spotlight on Eunice Nyandat, Founder of MyBizMarketer and self-professed geek and tech enthusiast.
Welcome Eunice, it’s our pleasure to have you. Tell us a little about yourself and background.
Hello, my name is Eunice Nyandat. I’m a founder at MyBizMarketer based in Nairobi, Kenya. I’m also a cybersecurity analyst and product manager. My first step into entrepreneurship was in 2005 as a product manager. I then went on to co-found of a lifestyle management company – The ErrandManager – in Atlanta GA. Three years later. I pivoted and founded a Digital Marketing, Advertising, and Analytics firm.
How has women conferences (or AWIT specifically) helped you in your business/career so far?
It has been amazing experience meeting numerous talented women who I have had the pleasure of doing business with as well as hiring several of them. We are growing in leaps and bounds through these networks and that’s special.
What’s one message you want to share with other women in tech/business?
It would be all about data and decisions.
You analyze different types of data to make informed decisions when addressing real-world problems.
Through this, you will develop quantitative skills that are critical for any high-performing employee or business leader. I am so looking forward to the event this July.
Join Eunice and other pan-African women in technology at the 2018 African Women in Technology (AWIT) Conference, Nairobi this July.
