“when I was offered my role at Sokowatch last year , I saw it as a fresh challenge. I’ve always been passionate about helping underserved SMEs and Sokowatch gave me the chance to do this in a larger and completely different field – the informal retail sector.”
Angela Nzioki is the CEO of sokowatch, a kenyan consumer goods startup.
Sokowatch, according to its website, enables informal retailers to order products at any time via SMS or mobile app, and receive free same-day delivery to their store, making it easier for shopkeepers to source goods and helps product manufacturers ensure that their products are consistently available to consumers.
The Strathmore University business and IT graduate who co-founded a startup called pluspeople in 2011 is “a well established Kenyan entrepreneur, IT evangelist and an advocate for women in technology. [she] occasionally speaks at FinTech events in Kenya, sharing [her] experiences co-founding and running a FinTech company in Kenya.”
As an advocate for women in technology, Angela mentors young girls pursuing IT related courses. She is also a certified project manager with a background in Sustainable Business Development from the Swedish Institute, and a Leadership and Entrepreneurship fellow of Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois USA through her participation in the The Mandela Washington Fellowship; the flagship Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) program of the U.S government.
According to The Flip,“She’s an MIT Zambezi fellow, an Alibaba e-Founder and a Skoll YLI (Young Leader Initiative). She also currently serves as an advisory board member for The Kilgoris Project (TKP), an NGO that partners with local communities to educate and feed children in Maasai communities and Kytabu, an Ed-Tech company that digitizes Kenyan curriculum content to improve learning experiences for children with different learning abilities.”
