The Tech Roundup With Kelechi Udoagwu is a new web series created with the aim of educating and empowering Africans to utilize and leverage on technology in their lives and businesses.
The sole purpose of the show is to simplify the news, trends and events in the fast-growing technology industry so the general African public who find it hard to understand and participate in the tech scene can get in and keep up.
Created in collaboration with OMG Digital’s Bitnode, the show is published weekly and is shot in various engaging formats – global and local news breakdown, deep dives into technology sectors, reviews of new tech products and applications, interviews with both rising and established tech entrepreneurs and recaps of interesting tech events held in Africa and beyond.
Speaking on the reason why she created this show, Kelechi Udoagwu says, “In everything I do and create, my mission is to empower and enlighten those around me. With Bitnode, I am creating this show to get African business owners, small-time entrepreneurs and individuals to understand and use technology to make their businesses and lives easier and better.”
“Whether we like it or not, technology and the digital space are not going anywhere. It’s only going to get bigger, more crowded and more intense as the years go by. The Tech Roundup is my way of making sure that we, Africans, are not left behind in taking advantage of all that technology has to offer,” Udoagwu added.
