Description:

About a year ago I flew to Uganda to start a new adventure. With very little information I started, together with a team in the Netherlands, something what would later become Tunga. During my 7 month journey through east Africa, I’ve met very inspiring people and start-ups. I witnessed that there are a lot of talented people working on very cool local software projects, but that there’s often a lack of accessibility to international and well-paid coding jobs.

And that’s why Tunga was created.

Tunga is an online market network, that’s all about empowering talented people in Africa, while simultaneously aiming to solve the scarcity problem of skilled coding talent in Europe.

During my talk I’ll tell you about the origins of Tunga as a start-up, my African adventure and our plans to put Africa on the map for software development.
